Want to start receiving information on BC Step Code? In 2022 the Building Code will be changing and many things will change. Stay in the know and you will be ahead of the curve when it lands. Compared to the current base BC Building Code, new homes will be

  1. 20 per cent more energy efficient by 2022
  2. 40 per cent more energy efficient by 2027, and
  3. 80 per cent more energy efficient by 2032 – the net-zero energy ready standard.

This will affect the real estate profession as how buildings are built will change and are changing.

Commercial Leasing

It is definitely not “business as usual” for many commercial landlords and tenants given the challenges faced by ongoing costs, business closures, and the changing economic landscape. In this webinar, we will hear from Bill Holder, a business litigation partner and mediator at Clark Wilson LLP, on how to navigate current “hot button” COVID-19 issues impacting parties to a commercial lease. Bill will weigh in on matters such as the question of rent deferral vs. abatement, operating costs, and the closure of premises. He’ll also offer some recommendations and strategies for dealing with these and other challenges in the face of the ongoing pandemic response.
