By 2032, the BC government plans to have all newly-built buildings emit zero energy waste.
With this and the recent changes in the BC Building Code, net-zero energy emitting buildings are becoming the most popular path to choose.
Here at ATEC Energy & Building Envelope Consulting, we are passionate about two things: building and the environment.
Our energy advisors are here to help you choose the best plan for your new building, whatever it may be, that complies with Canada’s EnerGuide Rating system standards. From the beginning of the design to the execution, our Energy Advisors help you achieve a building with net-zero energy.
Our Energy Advisors are here to provide you with an in-depth report of your Energy Consumption Savings and much more.
