New Green Building Code

In September 2008 the BC Building Code added a new Green Building section, Part 10.  We are now required to install 6 litre toilets and low flow faucetts and shower heads.  Which saves water and money in the long run.  For new homes there is also the energy rating test.  Your home must meet a rating of 77 (soon to increase to 80).  Your plans are evaluated by an Energuide energy advisor, and your finished home will rquire a blower door test. This is where they can see if or where you will loose heat etc.
