Building Permits and Inspections
Marex - Your building permit and inspection connection
The ABC sets out technical requirements for the design and construction of new buildings, as well as alterations, demolition, and change of use of existing buildings. There are five objectives that the ABC is designed to address:
- Accessibility for persons with disabilities
- Fire and structural protection of buildings
All of the requirements set out in the code will meet at least one or more of these objectives. When a safety codes officer has questions or concerns regarding code compliance, they are centered on these five objectives. Drawing reviews are required for all building permits.
