Staying current with property construction and retrofit guidelines. Recent and potential changes to Canada’s National Building Code are giving property stakeholders more to consider when it comes to retrofits and new constructions. A bulk of those changes stem from the country’s mission to adopt a “net-zero energy ready” model building code by 2030 – a move that will hold new property constructions to more stringent energy usage guidelines, inspire new standards for building equipment and guide energy efficient improvements during retrofits and renovations.
