Our Plan Examination course is an introduction to reading and interpreting construction drawings for those interested in performing the plan examination function as a building official. Study architectural working drawings in order to understand the importance of building component co-ordination as well as the interdependency of structural, electrical and mechanical systems. Develop a knowledge of how drawings must be prepared for building permit applications, and learn how to relate the information contained on the drawings/specifications to the Ontario Building Code.
Course Delivery Method:
This is normally an in-class course but will be offered temporarily online via Blackboard Learn/Collaborate while college buildings are closed.
You must bring a copy of the 2012 Building Code Compendium to the first class. The compendium is available for purchase through the George Brown College bookstore, at our Building Code and Trade Manuals website and at the Publications Ontario website.
