Rules & Regulations

Many renovations require more than just a great idea. There are regulations that have to be met and rules to be followed to avoid being told that you have to pull down your recently completed extension / deck / treehouse.

Read through the section listed on the right to make sure you know what you need to do to meet all the legal requirements for your renovation. Or take a look at the articles below:

Building Code of Australia

Building Code of Australia - Books, CD-ROM and Website

The Building Code of Australia (BCA) is a uniform set of technical provisions for the design and construction of buildings and other structures throughout Australia. The BCA is given legal effect by building regulatory legislation in each State and Territory. Any provision of the BCA may be overridden by, or subject to, State or Territory legislation. The BCA must therefore be read in conjunction with that legislation.
