[HALIFAX, NS] – The province is asking builders, architects, engineers, municipal building officials and other interested parties for input on 24 recommendations prepared for the Building Advisory Committee.
A discussion paper, in English and French, and the complete Review of Obligations under Letters of Undertaking are posted at www.gov.ns.ca/lae/policy/BuildingCodeLettersofUndertaking.asp.
Letters of undertaking, provided by architects and engineers, help municipal building officials confirm that a building's design meets or exceeds the minimum standards of the Nova Scotia Building Code and that the construction conforms to the design.
The department will review comments that are received by Dec. 14.
Responses will be reviewed by staff and summarized for the Building Advisory Committee in early 2013, and the committee will make its final recommendations to government later in the year.
