Illustrated Guide: Seismic Bracing Requirements: BC Building Code Part 9, 2019 Edition

Part 9 construction embraces the design and construction of houses with prescriptive requirements that result in safe, comfortable houses. The building code is constantly revised in response to the continually improving understanding about the complex environmental loads that impact the performance of houses.

This guide has been produced in an effort to clearly describe the new building code requirements for lateral bracing of small wood-frame structures in the high seismic regions of British Columbia. Designers will need to consider these requirements when creating the form of the exterior walls, as well as the dimensions and locations of interior walls. Builders will need to understand the material requirements, as well as the construction methods necessary to fabricate braced wall panels at required locations throughout the structure.
