Understanding of relevant changes to the legally adopted BC Building Code will help you with practical aspects of getting your permit applications. Essentially, navigating the technical requirements of the codes and their administrative provisions is a practical skill that can have an impact on the daily practice of Interior Designers.
With ongoing updates to the codes and referenced standards (the most recent being December 10, 2018 for BCBC), the practice for obtaining permit approval is ever evolving, and staying current on this subject is important for all Interior Designers.
Completing a 2 hour code update seminar is now mandatory for all Registered Interior Designers in BC prior to December 31, 2021. Similar updates that satisfy this requirement have also been offered at BuildEx in 2019 and at the IDIBC AGM in 2019.
