Safety Codes

Please Note:  The County Centre office is now open to the public, however we are still operating through various means. The public can contact employees working remotely or on-site via phone or meeting platform. Employees are expected to provide services as safely as they can via modified work arrangements which may include reduced on-site staffing or working from home options.

Public access will be limited to the foyer and areas up to the reception desk and planning desk. No public access past these points is permitted.

The foyer has a capacity of 15 people while maintaining physical distancing of 2 metres.

Members of the public are required to use hand sanitizer prior to entry. Washrooms remain closed to all public (with the exception of the main lobby washroom).

Thank you for your patience and cooperation. Please review our current service levels as outlined below.

Adoption of the National Energy Codes (2011)
As of November 1, 2016 Alberta will adopt the “National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011” (NECB). The application of this code applies to Assembly occupancies, Care and Detention Occupancies, High Hazard Industrial occupancies and other Part 3 buildings defined under the Alberta Building Code. Part 3 buildings are over 600m2 in area and/or more than 3 storeys in height.

Also on November 1, 2016, Section 9.36. of the Alberta Building Code 2014 (ABC) will take effect. This change will affect smaller buildings not under the scope of the NECB. Houses, duplexes and smaller commercial buildings will need to incorporate the requirements of Section 9.36.

The major changes to buildings affect:
  • Building Envelope
  • Lighting
  • HVAC Systems
  • Service Water Heating Systems
  • Electrical Power Systems and Motors
