A Mid-Construction Verification Report assesses the airtightness of a building partway through the construction process. Testing mid-construction enables changes to be made – if needed – to improve the building’s airtightness prior to building completion when such changes can be costly. This report also enables Energy Advisors and energy modellers to document installation of energy-efficiency components identified in the Pre-Construction Report.

Although mid-construction testing is not a requirement of the BC Building Code, some local governments require builders to submit a Mid-Construction Verification Report as an administrative procedure for implementing the BC Energy Step Code. Using a standard format makes it easier for Energy Advisors and energy modellers to complete the report, and for building officials to review it.

Check with your local building official to see if this report is required.
