Deadline for Enrolments Using 2015 Checklists—March 31, 2016

High Density Enrolment “Maximum” Fees Increase—Per-Unit Costs Remain As Is—Effective April 1

Built Green Canada launched its High Density program in June 2013. The program was a progression of the multi-storey and residential tower program, which was in existence for three years before it transitioned to a High Density pilot in 2011. The transition was based on builders’ input, emerging building practices, energy efficiency advancements, and market demand. Extensive work was undertaken by Built Green Canada’s Technical Standards Committee. At the time, the per-unit fee for a High Density project certification was $100 to a maximum of $10,000. To more accurately reflect this type of project, effective April 1, 2016, the per-unit fee of $100 will remain as is with the maximum increasing from $10,000 to $20,000. Therefore, only those projects that have surpassed 100 units will be impacted.
