IDC & IDIBC Seminar: Successfully Navigating Through Vancouver Building Bylaw Part 11

  • Herman Miller Showroom 100-1035 West Pender Street Vancouver, BC V6E 2M6 Canada (map)

AES is pleased to present this in-depth seminar that will provide interior designers with an understanding of the codes and standards that apply to tenant improvement and renovation projects and the means for compliance, with the focus on the City of Vancouver requirements.

Part 1 will provide an overview of the relevant sections of the Vancouver Building Bylaw (VBBL) and ASHRAE energy code, during which attendees will learn when it is necessary to incorporate energy efficient details such as receptacle control, switching, space lighting control and daylight harvesting into their designs.

Part 2 will address the topic of “energy triggers” for renovation projects, allowing designers to more easily recognize where the prescriptive requirements of the energy codes are applicable and to develop solutions for compliance. During the final hour, participants will learn how to complete the documentation necessary for a successful Building Permit application: (energy statements, lighting power density calculations, ASHRAE checklist) and when to involve engineers in the process.
