BCIN Certification

--> For construction in Ontario only
Since January 1st 2006, The Ontario Provincial Government's Bill 124 has been in effect. The result is that a Building Code Identification Number must appear on all drawings being submitted for a building permit.

We fully comply with the regulation and have a valid BCIN. This is a service that we had provided without charge in the past but due to the changes that came into effect on January 1st 2012 and the additional requirements that construction must now meet with regards to energy efficiency requirements, it has meant a substantial increase in the number of hours required to produce these documents.

As a result, we have no choice but to charge for the BCIN which now includes the Energy Efficiency Design Summary and the Schedule 1.

These charges are effective immediately and will be in addition to the cost of the plans sold for delivery in Ontario, Canada as follows :
  • House plans with or without garage and / or appartment $250
  • Multi-unit plans $350
  • $100 only if the garage will be heated otherwise it is not required
