Smithers: Builders Breakfast — Intro to the BC Energy Step Code

February 12, 2020 @ 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm


The Town of Smithers is preparing to adopt a new Building Bylaw in 2020 which will reference the BC Energy Step Code.

The Energy Step Code is a performance-based compliance path in the BC Building Code that is currently optional. The Province has signaled that by 2022, Step 3 will be the minimum code requirement for all new Part 9 buildings across BC. The Energy Step Code establishes a set of metrics that the builder demonstrates through energy modelling and air tightness testing conducted by an energy advisor.


  • Introduction
  • Highlights of Proposed new Smithers Building Bylaw
  • Building to Energy Step Code
  • Discussion and feedback with Builders, Building Officals and Energy Advisor.

This event is free but space is limited. Please register so we know to expect you.

Builders/designers/trades and anyone involved in the building industry in the area is welcome to attend.

This event is hosted by the Town of Smithers and Community Energy Association with funding provided by Pacific Northern Gas Ltd.
