Construction regulations are enshrined in a variety of acts, laws, building codes, rules and standards as vast as the industry itself. To navigate them successfully, you’ll need more than just a solid plan.
Construction regulations vary based on the nature and location of the development, and cover building codes, occupational health and safety rules, public and private sector projects, zoning and land planning laws and values of universal public accessibility.
Our lawyers can help you understand, navigate and comply with regulatory, municipal and provincial requirements, including those of the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ – the Quebec construction commission), the Régie du bâtiment du Québec (RBQ – the Quebec building authority), the Quebec Building Code, the Bureau des soumissions déposées du Québec (BSDQ – the Quebec bid depository) and the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST – the occupational health and safety commission). We can guide you through the laws, regulations and codes of ethics that govern architects, engineers, geoscientists, land surveyors and other professionals involved in development, construction and infrastructure projects.
