City of Edmonton: New Ground Plates Accepted– A.C. Dandy has released new CSA approved ground plates that will be accepted by the City of Edmonton. If you are installing these new ground plates, as per the installation guidelines, then no inspection of the ground plates will be required, except that the approval label on the upper portion of the rod shall be visible at the time of the service inspection. Inspection of other grounding electrodes will still be required. Read more.
City of Edmonton: Conditional Items for Acceptance & Revision Process – CHBA-ER and the City of Edmonton have worked together to outline items that the City may accept conditionally during various inspection processes which will be rectified by the builder later to avoid delays in the construction process. As a reminder, some minor revisions may be accepted on-site. All revisions must be conducted according to the City of Edmonton’s Part 9 Project Product Exchange and Plan Revision Procedure.

If you have questions about any of these initiatives, please contact Laura Bruno.
