BUILDING CODE: Means of Egress – Access to Exits and Exits

This half day session provides participants with a basic understanding of the application of Section 3.4. Exits of the 2015 National Building Code of Canada (NBCC) 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.

 

Software: Each participant will be provided with the following software:

  • Exit design and analysis software
  • Software for the application of Subsection 3.2.2. Building Size and Construction Relative to Occupancy of the National Building Code of Canada (NBC). This software will allow the user to view the construction requirements of Subsection 3.2.2. from the 2015 NBC and editions dating back to 1975.
  • Effective dates of Codes and Building Bylaws in Manitoba
  • Definitions in the 2015 NBC
  • Firewalls
  • Mezzanines
