Building Code Interpretation

Application of Energy Efficiency Requirements and Enforcement Dates Introduction

This STANDATA has been developed to provide interpretations respecting the application of energy efficiency requirements under Section 9.36. Alberta Building Code 2014 (ABC 2014) and the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011 (NECB 2011). A key update is the clarified enforcement date of November 1, 2016 for energy efficiency requirements.

MBSE Update

As you are all aware (we hope!) the erection of Metal Buildings can only be performed by certified Ironworkers or Metal Building System Erectors. Workers must either have an Alberta (or Red Seal) Journeyman Certificate (MBSE or IW) or be a registered apprentice. Currently there about 125 MBSE registered apprentices in Alberta. Of these, approximately 80 are from Northern Alberta and 45 from Red Deer south. From the total number, approximately 95 of the registered apprentices are first year and the balance is second year. Unfortunately, a lot of first years are signing up but not attending technical training and end up being cancelled after two years....
