Special education session:

The SNBSC building inspection department, in conjunction with Nudura and Bird Stairs, is pleased to announce a special education event on above-ground ICF shear walls. The session will run 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.  Monday July 11. (More here.)

Avoid delays:

We're into busy season now - and building permits are taking, on average, at least two weeks to process. To avoid delays, make sure your application contains all the required details.  A critical issue causing delays in some permits has been missing earthquake bracing detail. We strongly advise that designers/applicants read the application checklist before filing an application. Click here for the southwest New Brunswick seismic map.
