requests (refer to the corresponding plans)

Using principals discussed in the class lectures as well as individual independent research, you will prepare the following:

1. Foundation plan
2. Second Floor and roof framing plans

Include the following information on your drawings/sheets:

1. Foundation plan (to be consistent with case study plans provided (3/32 = 1-0):
a. Grid lines (located along outside face of foundation wall)
b. Dimensions (starting from grid lines)
c. North arrow
d. Drawing Title and Scale
e. Annotate column locations
NOTE: Foundation walls(if required) shall be min. 8 thick

2. Floor and roof framing plans (3/32 = 1-0):
f. Grid lines
g. Overall dimensions (starting from grid lines)
h. North arrow
i. Show direction of joists
j. Label Joists, beams and columns
k. Include Joist and beam schedule

(Part B)

Revised Floor plans/Code Review + Wall section details

Using principals discussed in the class lectures as well as individual independent research, independently complete the following:

1. Code review of your case study plan.
2. Revised plan layout in compliance with the National Building Code, Part 3
3. Complete the technical drawings of the two wall sections (exterior and interior) identified on the case study plans.
Existing Code Review. (NBC, Part 3)

You are to complete a thorough code review of the existing layout of your case study. The Interior layouts and design considerations of

2. Select the most appropriate Building Classification

3. Identify the required fire ratings between all tenants using a labeled dash-dot line indicating the required fire rating on the plans.

4. List the required fire ratings for floors, load bearing beams and columns

5. Ensure your path of travel and exits for all tenant spaces meet code requirements (ie. distance b/w exits, door widths, barrier-free
requirements/path of travel, direction of swing, clearance requirements etc..)

6. Washroom Requirements (3.6)
** All code related information must be labeled and/or shown on the drawing(s)


1. All Assemblies (foundations, walls and roof) must meet the NBC code minimum for effective Thermal Resistance in Buildings without

Refer to the NBC Fire and Sound Resistance Tables located on the course google drive folder.

2. Include the following notes and dimensions on your Interior wall section drawings:
a. heights of underside (U/S) or top of (T/O) wall finishes, fixtures, windows sills, finished floor, finished ceiling.
b. Wall base material (typically 4-6)
