TECHNICAL BUILDING CODE (CTE) - the reason behind the technical code
TECHNICAL BUILDING CODE (CTE) - the reason behind the technical code

This document arose in view of the need to organise, regulate and specify the construction processes and qualities in buildings, as well as to make progress in terms of sustainability and innovation. It was published on March 17th 2006.
The basis of this code is to provide a standard instrument establishing the basic quality demands in buildings and consequently in installations thereof. It is also worth emphasising that it is an evolving code that provides improvements and one that is fully immersed and linked to the evolution of the industry in a European context.

The following attached files show the provisions in the use of the CTE and we hope they are useful for consultation material.
