Participants will be provided with highlights of significant code changes that will primarily focus on common design elements, such as path of travel throughout a building, washroom requirements, fixed seating, and controls/devices. Additionally, this seminar will provide an overview of the new Built Environment Standard, as applicable to buildings.
