StepWin Targets the BC Step Code

The intuitive way of finding the most energy efficient designs on the same budget. StepWin can look at all possible ways of building a house, perform the energy and costing calculations, and find which design is performing best.

With StepWin's web-based interface construction professionals can input and assess designs within minutes. Use it at the early stage of your building design!

We are working with:

Intuitive Interface

  • Simple interface with focus only on key drivers of energy consumption.
  • Designed for decision-making from the very early stage of house design.
  • Guides the decisions with help bubbles and suggestions.
  • Available for every climate of British Columbia.
  • Accessible on any platform with a modern browser.

Insightful Outputs

  • Smart selection of best-performing designs based on cost and energy performance.
  • Design export to different formats including HOT2000.
  • Cost analysis and breakdown.
  • Prioritization of passive elements for durability and constructability.
  • Details and references for each suggestion.
