Building Rules Assessment involves the technical assessment of a proposal for compliance with the Building Code of Australia and relevant Australian Standards applicable to the classification of the proposed building.
In general the Building Code covers:
- Structural adequacy
- Fire Safety
- Health and amenity
- Access for people with disabilities
- Energy efficiency
- Swimming pools
Applicants have the option of using a Private Certifier or Council to assess an application for building rules compliance.
