BA&A certifiers will support you to cut through the clutter.
Many clients have been asking about how significant the NCC changes will be. We want to help you avoid any certification hassles by passing on the insights we have gained so far. All building classes will be affected. As specialists for certification of class 1 and 10 buildings, BA&A is pleased to note that Volume 2 has fewer changes, though the order has adjusted.
As well as NCC changes, as outlined by the ABCB, many referenced standards have been revised and updated.
According to the HIA, changes to the following will apply for low rise buildings:
AS/NZS 2918 - Solid Fuel Burning devices
AS 35000.3 - Plumbing installations - Stormwater drainage
AS 3700 - Masonry structures
AS 4200 - Pliable building membranes
AS 5113 - Facade assembly testing standard - Classification of external walls of buildings based on reaction to fire performance
AS5146 - Autoclaved Aerated Concrete standard
AS 1562.1 - Metal Roofing and AS 2050 - Roof Tiling
