Accredited Electrical Consulting

Over the last few decades, the electrical industry has seen massive improvements in products and systems.  Aggressive advanced technologies have vastly improved electrical products and systems, making a positive impact on the environment.  The Americas have been early adopters of these technologies.  British Columbia has adopted a new BC Building Requirement Code. Harvey Kirsch provides electrical consulting services that address and include the following:

01. Electrical Requirements of current ASHRAE 90.1
ASHRAEStandard 90.1 has been a benchmark for commercial building energy codes in the United States and a key basis for codes and standards around the world for more than 35 years

02. National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings (NECB)

The National Energy Board is Canada’s energy and safety regulator. We oversee safety for the full life cycle of a project – from approval to construction to operation to abandonment. We work with communities, sharing the goal of making energy infrastructure as safe as it can be.

03. Energy Codes adopted in BC

BC has been pursuing energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction goals in buildings for more than six years. In April 2013, BC took the next step towards greater energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction with the adoption of  new BC Building Code requirements.
