Further updates to the British Columbia Building Code again in 2015 resulted in further options for design and selection of fenestration and door products for both Part 5 and Part 9 buildings as follows: The ‘NAFS Results’ data presented in this online tool for the Part 9 data set buildings located in British Columbia are representative of buildings less than 10m in height, and hence utilize the BC Building Code Appendix C table C-4 climatic data.
For scenarios where it is instead intended to utilize the 2009 Canadian Supplement for NAFS Update No 1 (July 2013) for a Part 9 building, the user should select the Part 5 data set to display ‘NAFS results’ that do not utilize the BC Building Code Appendix C table C-4 climatic data.
The 2000 edition of the building code was supposed to be an objective or performance-based building.
However, this took considerably longer to write than foreseen and the next edition of the National Building Code of Canada was not published until 2005.
The National Model Codes and the User's Guide series – which include the National Building Code, the National Fire Code, the National Plumbing Code, and the National Energy Code for Buildings – are now collectively referred to as Codes Canada.These include the National Building Code, the National Fire Code, the National Plumbing Code, the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings (NECB) and other documents.The Canadian Standards Association (CSA) publishes other model codes that address electrical, gas and elevator systems.In the early years of regulating building construction, this caused a patchwork of building codes across Canada.In 1941, the federal government of Canada published the first National Building Code.
