BC Building Safety Branch seeking Kelowna Input


The Building and Safety Policy Branch is seeking public input on three proposals for changes to Provincial building regulations:

High-Efficiency Toilets - Building Code requirement for high-efficiency toilets (including dual-flush units) and urinals in new construction. The requirement supports greening the BC Building Code and Living Water Smart, BC's water plan.

Solar Hot Water Ready - Local government option to require Solar Hot Water Ready construction for new single family houses, which supports the 100,000 Solar Roofs Initiative and the Province's commitment to reduce GHG emissions.

Letters of Assurance - Update to the Building Code's Letters of Assurance. The update responds to industry requests and supports the Modernization Strategy's shift toward more clearly defined
responsibilities and accountabilities.

It is important that we hear from you. You are invited to comment on these proposals through the public review until September 14, 2009. The public review is available online through the Building and Safety Policy Branch website at:

http://www.housing.gov.bc.ca/building/consultation/

Please feel free to forward this information to your colleagues and other stakeholders.  We look forward to receiving your
feedback.

Best regards,

These are actually very innovative and fine ideas...the solar energy to be used more and more is a wonderful proposition indeed.

Experts have talked about this before. How many times have you read about the importance of ‘adding value’ for your audience? How many times have you read about ‘building trust’ with your readers/prospects?
Many, many times. You know it well. Every marketing guru has spoken about this topic. I’m sick of hearing it. But it STILL bears repeating.

Construction workers either need to abide by all of the construction site safety regulations or find a different job. There are way too many preventable work-related injuries, many of them tragic.
