WCA | BUILDING CODE: Accessibility of the 2015 NBC with Manitoba Amendments

This half-day session will focus on the requirements of Section 3.8. Barrier-Free Design of both the 2010 National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) and the 2015 National Building Code of Canada.

The Manitoba Amendments in the 2010 NBCC are still applicable in Manitoba since the 2015 NBCC has not yet been adopted in Manitoba. It remains to be seen if these amendments will be carried through with the adoption of the 2015 NBCC in Manitoba. Regardless, all topics presented in the seminar will include the current Manitoba Amendments. City of Winnipeg policies as they relate to the interpretation and application of these policies to both new and existing buildings will be covered.

Numerous examples will be provided for the application of the accessibility requirements to both new construction and to existing buildings.
