NBC 108: Site Consideration For Seismic Hazards sets out some of the factors to be considered during site selection for buildings in order to minimise the risks to the buildings from both primary and secondary seismic hazards.
It also outlines the fundamental requirements for site investigation for the foundation design of buildings.
The degree to which each factor should be considered will depend on the importance and size of the building under consideration. The document is particularly applicable for State of Art Design and Engineered buildings.
