    WHAT'S GOOD FOR PEOPLE? MOVING FROM WELLNESS TO WELL-BEING
    9:30 - 10:30 a.m.| 1 IDCEC hour (HSW)

    Due to looming talent shortages and increased healthcare costs, organizations across the global are concentrating efforts to ensure the sustainability of their most important asset, their people. Unlike other business assets—buildings, technology, investments—people have a choice about for whom they work, how much they give to their job and how they impact the people around them. In a knowledge economy, the knowledge, skills, creativity and connections of its people are an organization’s primary, and oftentimes only, performing assets.Research shows that happy, healthy and engaged employees produce more and cost less. An organization’s workplaces, work processes and work practices comprise an ecosystem that has the potential to enhance employee well-being and thus, organizational performance.

    BCBC – A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO CODE UPDATES FOR INTERIOR DESIGNERS
    1 - 3 p.m.

    Navigating the technical requirements of building codes and their administrative provisions is a practical skill that can have a huge impact on the daily practice of Interior Designers. With ongoing updates to the BC Building Code (the most recent being December 2018), as well as relevant standards, the practice for obtaining permit approval is ever evolving.

    Attend this session for a practical discussion on the latest updates of the BC Building Code, specifically looking at the implications on day-to-day implementation for Interior Designers. Focussing on Part 3, with some discussion of Part 9, the presenter will answer the following questions:

    • What is the BC building code?
    • What are the latest updates and how do these changes affect me as an interior designer?
    • How dies this affect my ability to get a building permit?
    • What do I need to know about the documentation (energy statements, lighting power density calculations, ASHRAE checklist, etc.) to successfully complete my building permit application?
    • When do I need to involve an engineer?
