Introduction

Building construction standards are a set of rules that specify the criteria for the design and construction of buildings and other non-building structures including bridges, monuments, dams, airports, tunnels and many others.

Throughout Australia, the National Construction Code (NCC) outlines the minimum necessary requirements for safety, health, amenity, accessibility and sustainability in the design, construction and performance of new buildings or the modification of existing buildings. It is the uniform set of technical codes for building work, plumbing and drainage installations throughout Australia.

These construction standards are generally applied by architects, engineers, interior designers, builders and regulators for the design and construction of buildings.
