Launch Building Code Team

There are two key ways that building codes could play a role in meeting CEI objectives:

  1. Direct influence on the Ontario Building Code and/or the Model National Energy Code for Buildings, with the objective of making provisions for energy efficiency and on-site renewable generation more stringent.
  2. Adoption of Green Development Standards, which effectively specify a more rigorous code for a particular jurisdiction (such as Guelph).

A further consideration is whether the scope of the code is strictly new construction, or whether it includes renovations.

The Building Code Team should include representation from the following stakeholders:

  1. Contractors – New construction
  2. Contractors – Renovation
  3. City of Guelph Building Department
  4. Building science consultancies
  5. Utilities (electric and gas)
  6. Realtors
