Building Construction

Focus on res­i­den­tial wood frame con­struc­tion as well as the legal require­ments of con­struc­tion as defined by the Alber­ta Build­ing Code. Although designed for indi­vid­u­als with lit­tle or no con­struc­tion knowl­edge, this course is a good review for those who already have build­ing expe­ri­ence. You will be giv­en an intro­duc­tion to basic blue­print read­ing, inter­pret­ing struc­tur­al and archi­tec­tur­al draw­ings, con­struc­tion tech­niques and basic esti­mat­ing; and an overview of man­u­fac­tur­ers and use of struc­tur­al mate­ri­als, aging prob­lems, lim­its on design and con­struc­tion, and safe­ty for the occu­pant.
