BC Building Code Updated

Nov 27 2018

BC Building Code (2018) comes into effect on December 10, 2018. All Building Permit Applications received on or after that date will be reviewed and permitted under the BCBC 2018. A copy will soon be made available at the Bowen Island Public Library. Inquiries can be directed to Greg Cormier, BIM Building Inspector at gcormier@bimbc.ca.

All building permit applications for new dwellings received on or after December 10, 2018 will be required to undergo airtightness testing. Requirements must be clearly indicated in the application documents and the final report is required before Certificates of Occupancy can be issued.
