Requirements for Alterations to Existing Buildings and Change of Major Occupancy

Kresten Krogsgaard, P.Eng. – Building Code Engineer, City of Regina

What special considerations and requirements apply when renovating existing buildings to new uses and occupancies? This presentation will give you a very local insight into what the City of Regina expects and enforces for these types of projects.

Accessibility Design Options

Sherry Hastings, Dipl. Arch. Tech., CCCA, CSP, Rick Hansen Foundation Accessibility Certification (TM) Professional, P3Architecture Partnership, Regina

Accessible design is beyond meeting minimum code requirements which often does not meet the actual needs of people with disabilities. The Rick Hansen Foundation has developed a universal rating scale with recommendations for accessing levels of meaningful access while complementing existing building codes and standards. Sherry Hastings is one of only a few RHFACPs in Saskatchewan, and will explore this range – from common issues with applying the minimum standard, to easily integrated ‘beyond the codes’ approaches.

Flexibility in Design: Building Code Alternative Solutions

Andrea Nylen, P.Eng., and Delaine MacDougall, Code Consultant, Celerity Engineering Ltd, Regina

What is an Alternative Solution? Find out how alternative solutions are used, and how they can increase flexibility in your design.
