Event Description

Participants will learn how to read, interpret and use the BC Building Code (2018). The course is specifically targeted for constructors of small buildings and residential construction in order to allow them to discuss with confidence issues brought up by inspectors, plan checkers and/or consultants.


At the end of the course participants will be able to:

• Have a working knowledge of the BC Building Code (2018) and be able to reference relevant sections quickly in their day-to-day dealings with inspectors, plan checkers and/or consultants;

• Understand the differences in construction where Part 9 of the Code is used for Small Buildings

compared to Part 3-8 for larger and more complex building systems;

• Understand how various Building Codes (National, Provincial and Local) and Bylaws operate in various jurisdictions;

• Understand the 38 sections within Part 9 of the Code and their application within residential construction;

• Understand where Part 10 applies to residential construction projects;

• Recognize the shortcomings of the Code and understand how to deal with multiple interpretations.


Audience: Ideal for those who have little or no background in using the BC Building Code (2018) and for those wanting an update regarding changes from the previous BC Building Code (2012).


Instructor: Chad Brechin, AScT. Chad is a “Georgie” award winning designer and has been designing commercial, industrial and high end residential construction projects for over thirty years. He received his AScT in Building Science at BCIT and graduated with honours and an award resulting from a design competition. Chad also holds a current BC residential builders’ license.
