Fabric Covered Buildings

MEMORANDUM
TO: Whom it May Concern
FROM: John Simpson, Director of Planning and Development
Robert Renschler, Safety Codes Officer, County of Grande Prairie
SUBJECT: Fabric Covered Buildings
DATE: August 19, 2011
In discussions with various individuals on the subject of Fabric Covered Buildings in industrial or commercial areas, it appears that we may need some clarification on approval processes:
• Where a Fabric Covered Building is to be used as a main building, it will require a Development Permit and a Building Permit, along with Engineered Drawings. These structures shall conform to all Building Code standards.
• Where a Fabric Covered Building is to be used as an Accessory Building on a permanent basis, it will require a Development Permit and a Building Permit along with Engineered Drawings. These structures shall conform to all Building Code standards
• Where a Fabric Covered Building is to be used as an Accessory Building for storage on a temporary basis (3 years or less), (and has approved Engineered Drawings from the factory available for inspection by the County), it will require a Development Permit and a Building Permit. As per sections 2.2.10.3 and A-1.1.1.3(1) of the 2006 Alberta Building Code, Engineered drawings will be subject to County of Grande Prairies Approval on a case by case basis.
• Where a Fabric Covered Buildings will be used as an Accessory Building either on a permanent or temporary basis, the County will consider making variances to setback requirements on a case by case basis.
