Acceptable Standards of Domestic Construction

Guides and Forms

The Acceptable Standards of Domestic Construction (2012 edition) handbook is available as a guide for home owners and a ready reference for builders, owner-builders, architects, councils, valuers, students and teachers, giving concise guidance on the relevant current standards for domestic construction.

The ASDC handbook is written in plain English for the widest possible use. It interprets Australian Standards and the Building Code of Australia in a practical way to guide work on site, and to establish excellence in building practice. The handbook also identifies requirements for approvals, inspections or the need for consultants for each building activity.
