HRM is not seeking a full transition to metric drawings at this time. However, some areas where metric measurements will be required are:
All measurement fields in the new online application form must be entered in metric. These include area and height (for example: building footprint area and height of building)
All measurements captured in metric on the online application should also be noted in metric on the submitted plans. A soft conversion is recommended and notation on the plans or a cover letter is acceptable for those specific data fields found on the application.
