BC Energy Step Code
Building a Sustainable Future in the Sea-to-Sky Corridor
With a strong focus on sustainability and green-building techniques, we are committed to creating homes that are not only stunning but also environmentally friendly. We proudly embrace the BC Energy Step Code and lead the way toward a greener future.
RDC Fine Homes brings a wealth of expertise and experience in energy-efficient construction. With the BC Energy Step Code as our guide, we are dedicated to exceeding expectations and delivering high-performance, low-energy homes to our clients.
Key Features of the BC Step Code
- Performance-Based: The BC Step Code focuses on the energy performance of a building rather than specific construction methods or materials.
- Incremental Steps: It is divided into five steps, each representing a higher level of energy efficiency. Builders can choose the step that suits their project goals.
- Compliance Flexibility: Builders have the flexibility to use various building methods and technologies to achieve compliance with the selected step.
- Climate Zone Specific: Requirements are tailored to different climate zones in BC to ensure optimal energy performance.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
At RDC Fine Homes, we understand the importance of reducing carbon emissions and embracing sustainable practices. We believe that a sustainable home should not only provide comfort and beauty but also contribute to a healthier planet.
That’s why we continually strive to incorporate energy-efficient appliances, reduce waste, and optimize construction practices to minimize our environmental footprint. Our commitment includes:
Energy Modelling: We utilize advanced energy modelling software to design and optimize the energy performance of our homes.
Quality Construction: Our skilled craftsmen use the latest building techniques and high-quality materials to ensure energy-efficient homes.
Sustainability: We incorporate sustainable features such as energy-efficient HVAC systems, insulation, and windows to reduce energy consumption.
Airtight Construction: We ensure our buildings are airtight, meaning that the infiltration and exfiltration of air through the building envelope are minimized, reducing drafts, heat loss, and energy waste.
Leading the Way with the BC Energy Step Code
As a frontrunner in sustainable construction, we have completed numerous homes at Step 3 or higher in the BC Energy Step Code. This places us at the forefront of energy efficiency and positions us to meet the evolving needs of our clients and the industry.
We conduct rigorous quality control checks at every stage of construction to ensure compliance. By exceeding the energy efficiency requirements set by the code, we ensure that our homes are comfortable, healthy, and cost-effective in the long run.
