The Community Energy Association and BCIT will be hosting a hands-on workshop on how to build to the BC Step Code March 28 and 29th in Campbell River.

The course introduces the fundamental principles of building science while helping students advance their construction knowledge and skills with respect to building envelope design for airtightness and advanced thermal performance of residential buildings.

Demonstrations including heat transfer, vapour diffusion, air flow, and moisture management will be employed to better understand the effect of thermal loads on the building enclosure performance. The hands-on work will focus on specific strategies to ensure airtightness of the final assembly with an emphasis on detailed solutions for managing critical control barriers in various assemblies.

The single day workshop will be held at the Willow Point Community Hall and participants are eligible for Group A CPD points through BC Housing. This event has been made possible thanks to BCIT ZEBLC, the Real Estate Foundation of BC and the City of Campbell River.
