EDMONTON — Two Alberta associations have released a joint bulletin to shed light on the roles, responsibilities and who can authenticate National Building Code-2019 Alberta Edition (NBCAE) schedules for building envelope projects.
The bulletin was developed by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA) and the Alberta Association of Architects (AAA). The bulletin is available on the APEGA and AAA websites.
“The bulletin will help registered architects, licensed interior designers and professional engineers involved in building projects in Alberta meet their legislated obligations,” Barbara Bruce, executive director of AAA, said in a news release.
“The bulletin provides clarity when there is overlap between the scope of practice of these professional groups in building envelope practice procedures.”
The bulletin uses definitions from the NBCAE, Safety Codes Act, Architects Act and the Engineering and Geoscience Professions Act.
The bulletin is enforceable as of July 1 and is approved by APEGA and AAA registrants.
