Illustrated User’s Guide – NBC 2015 Part 9 Housing and Small Buildings
The Illustrated User's Guide - NBC 2015: Part 9 of Division B, Housing and Small Buildings features hundreds of graphics, examples and formulas. This latest edition includes updated illustrations that are more consistent with common architectural rendering and more easily understood.
The User's Guide helps builders and designers understand the National Building Code 2015 as it applies to them. The Guide illustrates important principles of minimum accepted practice and explains the reasons and scientific background behind the Part 9 requirements. This is not a how-to guide on home construction; however, relevant code information is cross-referenced and statistical sources are provided.
The purpose of this Guide is to help Code users understand and apply the provisions in Part 9 of the National Building Code of Canada 2015 (NBC). It is a companion document to NBC Part 9—not a stand-alone document.
This Guide has no legal status and is not intended for formal adoption: its purpose is solely informational. Sketches and diagrams illustrate principles only; other methods of satisfying the requirements may be equally valid. If there are cases where text in the Guide conflicts with a requirement in the NBC, the NBC requirement governs.
