General Legal/Process February 2-3 & 9-10, 2013
Part 9/House March 23-24 & 30-31, 2013
Instructor: Ian McKinlay
In Ontario, all building design practitioners must obtain a Building Code Identification Number (BCIN) to ensure familiarity with the Ontario Building Code and to be eligible to obtain the insurance necessary to practice professionally. For designers of residential buildings under 6,000m3 two exams must be passed: General Legal/Process and Part 9/House.
Endeavour will be presenting preparatory courses for both the General Legal/Process and Part 9/House.
Unique to Endeavour’s presentations will be a focus on Alternative Compliance pathways in the code and a focus on working with unconventional materials and methods using Objectives and Function Statements. These courses will also have a focus on dispute resolution and the Building Code Commission. This is the ideal way for those who design for natural and sustainable strategies to learn to use the OBC to their best advantage.
