Join us on the SB-12 OBC 2017 Ontario Tour
EnerQuality is teaming up with
OHBA, OBOA, local HBAs and select partners to take SB-12 workshops on the road in September and October.
Packed into a convenient half-day and with a special HBA & OBOA price in select markets, the experts will analyze changes to the new Ontario Building Code SB-12 Supplement that will require all new houses to reach higher performance levels of energy efficiency, effective this coming January 1, 2017.
The curriculum has been developed by Ontario Home Builders' Association and Ontario Building Officials' Association, and will be delivered by subject-matter experts Andy Oding, Gord Cooke, Ross Elliott and Doug Tarry and other special guests.
