Subject: Paris, France building code


> Okay, I've googled on just about every term I can think of to no
> avail.  There doesn't appear to be an EU-wide code yet (2007, IIRC, is the
> earliest date I found for a proposed building code). Is there / what is
the
> reference code for design of structures in France, specifically around
Paris.
>
> I've been asked to do some preliminary work for a domestic US fabrication
> plant for a small commerce building (3900SF/370m2).  FWIW, it's a cold
> formed steel structure with a cast-in-place one way concrete joist roof
> (possibly, roof trusses are still in play). I have been given specific
> values for live gravity loads, but I would be guessing for wind/seismic
> equivalents. Also, are ACI/AISI/AISC design guideline sufficient/comparale
> to the european/French equivalents.

>
> A second follow on question:  What are the common rebar sizes in France (&
> the EU in general)?  "Metric" here in the states means specifying
> 10/13/16/19 mm rebar (#3,4,5,6), but I have worked with an Ontario
