Building codes hunting

Building codes hunting

Building codes hunting


I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this. I am a structural engineer currently working on egyptian projects. obviously i am not an egyptian. my problem is my design has to comply with their local building code which they provides to us in Arabics. I wonder if anyone here can provide me with some information on where I can purchase English version of their building codes(the structure related ones). or my question could be "do they even have their building codes in english?"
appreciate your help!!


RE: Building codes hunting

Add to the question,
I am mostly interested in these three codes: ECP-201(which is about loads),ECP-203(concrete structure),ECP-205(steel structure)

RE: Building codes hunting

ECP -201 and ECP -203 to my knowledge are issued in Arabic only
ECP-205 you can find it there http://www.hti.edu.eg/academic-files/Arabic/1672.p...

if you need Hard copy of the code you can get it from Ministry of Housing or any of Universities in Egypt


RE: Building codes hunting

Thank you for the help! Yes, I suspected 201 is probably in Arabics only. I have found the English version of ECP 203,205,208 through several document search engines online. However, ECP-201, I can only find it in Arabics... We will definitely purchase the hardcopy once we arrive there.
