Building Code: Means of Egress - Exits and Access to Exits


Description
These two half-day session will provide you with a basic understanding of the application of Section 3.4. Exits of the 2020 National Building Code of Canada (NBC) to buildings regulated by Part 3 of the Code.

An understanding of the means of egress requirements (the ways out of a building) is fundamental to any code analysis and must be applied in the early stages of building design. It is equally important to the analysis of the exit capacity in existing buildings.

Designers and constructors alike must be aware of the requirements applicable to the means of egress.

Topics:

  • Relevant Code Definitions
  • Means of egress
  • Types of exits
  • Access to exit
  • Number of exits required - Single exit permitted
  • Location of exits
  • Travel distance measurement
  • Integrity of exits
  • Fire separation requirements for exits
  • Exits requirements for mezzanines
  • Stair, guard and handrail requirements
  • Horizontal exits
  • Workshop Problems

BONUS! Included in your course registration is Building Code Software designed and maintained by John Frye. This is exclusive software that you will NOT find anywhere else!

NOTE: In anticipation of the pending adoption of the 2020 NBCC in Manitoba this training will be based on the 2020 code. References will be made to the 2010 and 2015 NBCC to identify any differences and changes. A brief overview of what's new in the 2020 NBCC will also be presented.
