Draft Scope/Description:


This Standard describes processes for the delivery of permanent volumetric modular buildings, where modules are constructed in a factory. This Standard specifies the procedures for


quality control in modular manufacturing;


logistics, transportation and storage;

non-modular and modular sitework;

lifting, placement, and setting;

installation and finishing; and

commissioning and handover.

1.2 Exclusions

This Standard does not cover the procedure for in-factory certification of buildings, modules, or panels.

Note: See CSA A277 for the procedure for in-factory certification of buildings, modules, or panels.

1.3 Terminology

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.4 Units of measure

The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.
