New Building Codes for 2019.

On January 1, 2019, a new Energy Code came into effect in Saskatchewan.

This code has the potential to change the way that today’s homes are designed and built as there is a higher emphasis on building homes that use less energy.

One thing that many people do not realize is that when they take out a building permit for a new home, the responsibility is ultimately theirs to ensure that, in the end, the entire project meets all applicable building codes. The new Energy Code is no exception. Homeowners will have to ensure that not only their RTM (house) meets the new requirements, but also other elements of the project such as the foundation, the concrete floor, and the home’s mechanical equipment. This can be a very overwhelming undertaking.

Here at B&B Homes, our staff is experienced in building not only energy efficient RTMs, but also managing all other elements of the construction project and ensuring that everything is up to code so you don’t have to.
