Building work must comply with the National Construction Code (NCC), which is a performance-based code. So buildings must “perform” to community expectations of safety, accessibility and energy efficiency.
Performance can be achieved by following standardised building solutions, known as “deemed-to-satisfy solutions”. Alternatively, “performance solutions” using other construction methods or materials can be used so long as they can be demonstrated to perform as required.
We are experienced in both the development and assessment of performance solutions and can advise where, and how, they might be beneficial for your project.
