Alberta Construction Association News

The Alberta government sent the following notice as a reminder that the transition period for voluntary application of the National Energy Code for Buildings (NECB) 2011 and Section 9.36. Alberta Building Code (ABC) 2014 for housing and small buildings ends on November 1, 2016.

Where an application for a building permit for a site-constructed building is received on or after November 1, 2016, the building design must comply with the requirements of the NECB 2011 or Section 9.36. ABC 2014 as appropriate. Please see the April 2016 Interpretation STANDATA - Application of Energy Efficiency Requirements and Enforcement Dates for details on application of the NECB 2011 and Section 9.36 ABC.

Energy codes are an important component of climate change strategies in Alberta, Canada and globally.
For this reason, owners, builders and designers are encouraged to voluntarily apply energy efficiency requirements during this transition period. Alberta and other provinces and territories are committed to the expeditious adoption of future editions of the national energy codes and improved energy efficiency standards.

STAY TUNED FOR A FUTURE PLANNING SESSION!
