This subclass authorizes construction work on multifamily buildings held in divided co-ownership and consisting of no more than 4 storeys without taking into account, in calculating these 4 storeys, private spaces used for parking or storage.   

It also authorizes construction work governed by subclasses 2.6, 3.1, 4.1, 5.1 and 6.1 of Schedule II when said work relates to a new residential building governed by this subclass.
