2018 BCBEC Conference: TEDI Guidelines
October 26, 2018 at 11:00 am - 11:30 am UTC-5
British Columbia Building Envelope Council’s (BCBEC) Conference and AGM is approaching, and we’re excited to be a part of it! This year’s program will focus on the new provincial Building Code cycle, and its increasing emphasis on energy demand and building envelope performance. The one-day symposium will take place on October 26, 2018 in Vancouver, BC.
Patrick Roppel, Building Science Specialist, will be presenting TEDI Guidelines at this year’s conference. This session will take place at 11 a.m.
This presentation provides an overview of the Guide to Low Thermal Energy Demand for Large Buildings aka the Low TEDI Guide. We will go over a chapter-by-chapter summary to get you familiar with this resource. The Low TEDI Guide aims to broaden the understanding of how high-rise residential buildings can meet stricter levels of performance, such as Passive House, BC Energy Step Code, City of Vancouver Zero Emission Building Plan and City of Toronto Zero Emissions Building Framework.
The focus is on current Canadian code requirements, construction practices and tested systems for high-rise residential buildings. Nevertheless, the concepts apply broadly and offer a starting point for the integrated design of Low TEDI buildings.
You can download the Guide to Low Thermal Energy Demand for Large Buildings at BC Housing’s website using the following link: Guide to Low Thermal Energy Demand for Large Buildings or Low TEDI GUIDE.
