The New Ontario Building Code -- Where Are We Headed?

Feb 28, 12:00pm - 1:30pm 
Duke of Westminster
77 Adelaide Street West, Toronto, ON M5H 1P9 

1 CE hr


Join us for a unique perspective on the newest version of the Ontario Building Code (OBC 2012).  More than a technical review, we will look into how OBC 2012 positions Ontario compared to the rest of the provinces and the rest of the world, as well as what’s on the horizon for building codes and for LEED.  It will be led by Doug Cane, Principal of Caneta Research Inc. / Caneta Energy, who has worked directly with both federal and provincial Code authorities to update OBC 2012, as well as to develop OBC 2006 and NECB 2011 (the National Building Code).

 
Learning Objectives: 
  • A brief background of the new SB-10 of the OBC 2012, how it was developed and what factors and considerations came into play;
  • Comparisons of OBC 2012 to the previous version, OBC 2006, as well as LEED Canada NC Option 1 Path 1 (MNECB 1997), the National Building Code (NECB 2011) and the new ASHRAE 90.1-2010;
We'll Also Cover:
  • How Ontario measures up relative to other Canadian provinces, the US and internationally;
  • What’s in store for the future: possible future Code changes (including a peek into OBC 2017), projections, and implications for the LEED Canada rating system.
This presentation will refer to the OBC 2012 as it relates to commercial and residential high-rise buildings.
