Updates to Ontario Building Code Supplementrary Standard SB-12

This event is OAA accredited for 2.0 structured learning hours

Seminar Description
The Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Housing is working to finalize the next version of the Supplementary Standard SB-12 (2017) and has published a draft version. The central thrust of this SB-12 update is for a 15% greater building energy efficiency than currently required for new homes. In this talk we’ll cover the key changes proposed which include; fewer packages, crediting envelope air leakage reduction, requires heat recovery in ventilation systems and will favour continuous insulation as effective assembly R-values are listed.
