Learn about changes in Part 9 of the BC Building Code that will come into force at the end of 2018. These changes will include new provisions for stairs, guards, sound transmission and seismic requirements, accessibility, energy and water efficiency standards, and other design elements.
This session will explore a variety of approaches to comply for each of the coming changes. The focus will be on the requirements that apply to single family and low-rise residential buildings.
The seminar was developed in collaboration with the Building and Safety Standards Branch, CHBA-BC, BOABC, EGBC, ASTTBC, AIBC, and new home warranty providers.
