Under this policy with the Government of Saskatchewan, all new projects and relevant renovations with at least 30% government funding will be designed and built to a high energy performance standard. That standard is defined as at least 25% better that the Model National Energy Code for Buildings 1997. Meeting this standard will help projects qualify for the Commercial Building Incentive Program of Natural Resources Canada, which provides incentives equal to double the annual energy savings, to a maximum of $60,000 for commercial buildings and $80,000 for industrial buildings. Project designers are encouraged to follow the Integrated Design Process, in which all the building design disciplines, plus the owner or owners representatives, take part in a series of facilitated workshops leading to the completed design of the new project. The process has been shown to result in high energy efficiency without increasing project costs.
