15612 Building Regulation

Core subject (Development Assessment core choice) in the Graduate Certificate in Development Assessment (C11204)



This subject deals with building regulation requirements and performance-based solutions for Class 2-9 buildings under the Building Code of Australia and NSW Environmental Planning and Assessment Act and introduces the concept of fire safety engineering. It covers multiple dwellings, commercial and industrial buildings, and provides guidance on up-to-date theory and practice in assessment. Because the subject deals with more complex buildings and issues, students should have substantial experience in building regulation. To enable professionals involved in development control to successfully carry out their duties they must have knowledge of the technical requirements that apply to the erection of buildings. The building regulations are an integral part of the approval process and an understanding of these technical requirements is essential.
