Deadline 1 May 2016 - The National Construction Code - Are You Ready?

Coming into effect on 1 May 2016 is the new National Construction Code (NCC) incorporating the amended Building Code of Australia (BCA) as volume 1 and volume 2.

Some definitional changes to the BCA have the potential to have significant flow on effect in terms of building design and layout, especially around issues of fire egress requirements and the effect that will have on multistorey residential apartment buildings.

It is important you touch base with your Certifier to discuss the changes coming into effect on 1 May 2016, and to ensure you have no outstanding issues at that date which might be caught by the changes.
