Reminder: NBC 2015 to take effect

Hey, we get it. Between Christmas and Covid and "egad, we need winter tires" and all the other stuff going on in our lives, it's easy to forget little details like the fact provincial regulations will phase out the 2010 edition of the National Building Code effective Dec. 31.

But we just wanted to post a little reminder that any applications received by our office after midnight Dec. 31 will have to follow NBC 2015. We did all this back in February of last year (until the province changed the rules to allow 2010 to be used until the end of the year.)

The critical thing for our office will be to ensure plans for buildings in the St. Stephen/Saint Andrews area meet NBC 2015 earthquake standards. For more, see the link here, although there are some other things to take into account - see the link here.
