    ATTENDEE AGENDA


    LUNCH AND NETWORKING
    12 noon to 1 p.m.

    COMMUNICATION: HOW TO EFFECTIVELY LISTEN TO INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY AND COLLABORATION
    2 IDCEC hours | 1:15 to 3:15 p.m. 

    When teams aren’t communicating effectively, it leads to a sick environment of information hoarding, resentment by those who aren’t kept up to date, bad planning and inefficiency. The team ends up working at cross purposes or unaware that others are taking on the same task.

    In this two hour seminar attendees will be able to identify where communication is breaking down and give them effective techniques to start to create a team culture of clear communication. Participants will learn:

    > A five-step model for effective conversations
    > Listening techniques that ensure clarity and understanding of one another and most importantly, become aware of the impact and cost of poor communication
    > How to resist the temptation to make assumptions and instead to be curious about other people's viewpoint and opinions
    > Learn how to leave conversations with agreed actions or next steps

    UPDATE ON THE BC BUILDING CODE ENERGY REQUIREMENTS FOR ELECTRICAL POWER AND LIGHTING
    1 IDCEC + HSW | 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

    On December 20, 2013, the new energy requirements of the BC Building Code for Part 3 buildings came into effect; following that, BC municipalities started adopting the same or similar provisions in their by-laws and prescriptions. The 2014 Vancouver Building By-Law (VBBL) new release will be in effect starting Jan 1, 2015 with some revisions and additions to the energy requirements of the BC BC, requiring that all new large buildings be designed to meet strict energy standards. Both ASHRAE/IES Standard 90.1-2010 and the National Energy Code for Buildings 2011 were used as a base for all those changes.

    The new requirements for building energy performance will have a significant impact on new construction and major renovation projects in BC. Lighting, being the single largest end use of electricity in commercial and high-rise residential buildings, is responsible for about 40% of the annual electrical energy consumption: its importance cannot be overestimated in the building energy performance.

    Interior Designers involved in new construction and tenant improvements should attend this seminar to learn how the new energy requirements will impact their projects.
