Since January 1st of 2006, The Ontario Provincial Government's Bill 124 bas been in effect. As a result, a Building Code Identification Number (BCIN) must now appear on all drawings being submitting for a building permit.
Drummond House Plans house plans comply with the regulations and have a valid BCIN. This service is available at an extra cost and is available when purchasing a house plan via our website.
Note that with the BCIN, an additional requirement came into affect On January 1st of 2012 and plans must now also meet the standards in regards to the energy efficiency requirements. This (EEDS – Energy efficiency design summary) is also included with the BCIN we provide as well as the Schedule 1.
Note that though Drummond House Plans can provide the BCIN for your house plan, no engineering is included. Certain plans and or local requirements may require you to have the plan certified by an engineer locally at your expense. Also, in the case where both 2x4 and 2x6 exterior wall versions of a plan are included, only the 2x6 version will be offered with the BCIN certification.
