AbstractThe Alberta Building Code 2006 (ABC) sets out technical provisions for the design and construction of new buildings. It also applies to the alteration, change of use and demolition of existing buildings. The ABC complements the Alberta Fire Code 2006, and both are indispensable for building officials, educators and professionals in the construction industry. New information has been added to the ABC 2006 to make it clearer, easier to apply to existing buildings, and more accommodating to innovation. It explains the objectives that the Code's provisions are intended to achieve and describes the functions that a building or its components must perform to fulfill these objectives. Application and intent statements are not available for this code.
