In March 2016, CHBA - Alberta released a new version of the Tall Wall Guideline that is compliant with the 2014 Alberta Building Code. An amendment that provides clarification around wind load was released on June 29, 2016. The guideline document is free to Members. Members should note that the Guideline has not yet been accepted by STANDATA so each local authority will have to agree to its use. CHBA – Alberta is working to have the guideline adopted by STANDATA as an alternative solution.
