title Minicode Generator: A Methodology to Extract Generic Building Codes
source CAAD Futures 93 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-444-89922-7] (Pittsburgh / USA), 1993, pp. 225-239
summary This paper describes work in progress. It summarizes the methodology for analyzing building codes and isolating generic building characteristics. These characteristics can be used by building code experts to markup code documents and subsequently by building code users to extract code provisions that apply to their projects. Although this methodology has been developed for the National Building Code of Canada, it can be applied to any model code and implemented on most computer platforms using off-the-shelf software. The paper outlines the scope of the research, the historical development, the problems encountered, and paradigms for markup and extraction of code provisions.
