OP2 Structural Sufficiency of the Building



Intent 1:

To limit the probability that the design of foundations on permafrost will not take into account the seasonal and long-term changes in soil properties and ground displacements as they affect the foundations, which could lead to excessive displacement of the foundation, which could lead to:

  • damage to the building, and
  • excessive distortion of the building, which could impede the intended use and occupancy of the building

Intent 2:

To facilitate, through qualification of persons especially qualified in foundations on permafrost, the determination of compliance with this requirement.
