BUILDING CODE: Spatial Separation and Exposure Protection
January 26 2018
Protection This half day session provides participants with a basic understanding of the application of Subsection 3.2.3. Spatial Separation and Exposure Protection of the 2015 National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) to buildings regulated by Part 3 of the Code. The application of Subsection 3.2.3. Spatial Separation and Exposure Protection is one of the first steps in building design and analysis. This is reflected by the City of Winnipeg Part 3 Design Summary. It logically follows Subsection 3.2.2. which was the first course of the WCA series.
Each participant will be provided with the following software:
Software for the application of Subsection 3.2.2. Building Size and Construction Relative to Occupancy of the National Building Code of Canada (NBC). This software will allow the user to view the construction requirements of Subsection 3.2.2. from the 2015 NBC and editions dating back to 1975.
