Today, knowledge of Australian Standards relevant to the project you are building is an essential part of any builder’s toolkit. With the establishment of the Office of the NSW Building Commissioner and the appointment of the Commissioner, a builder’s accountability has never been more important.
With the introduction of the Design and Building Practitioners Act, amendments to the Home Building Act, licensing overhauls, and amendments to fire safety and WHS Regulations, it's clear the landscape is changing. Furthermore, the recent introduction of the defects insurance scheme to protect apartment owners underscores the importance of brushing up on your standards knowledge.
The MBA NSW Housing and Technical Dept. has compiled a list of primary and secondary standards. This list is based on the volume of enquiries the Association has received and their relevance to various construction projects. Please note, the standards are listed without any weighting or priority, other than primary and secondary groupings.
The standards identified below can be purchased with your complimentary myBIG™ MBA subscription.
