On December 19, 2014 changes to the 2012 BC Building Code were made to section 9.13. This is the section of the building code that deals with control of soil gas and we now have new mandatory “Radon rough-in requirements” implemented as per Table C-3. This section now provides a more descriptive method of radon rough-in requirements. It is a victory in helping to limit radon induced lung cancer from new buildings within BC, and IRPS was a large participant in recommending the appropriate changes to the Building and Safety Standards Branch.
