Introduction: This course provides guidance and understanding of the National Construction Code (NCC) requirements and associated design principles.

Course outline

Design practitioners are central to the creation and adaptation of buildings. NCC compliance underpins the minimum standards of design and construction, and a good understanding of the NCC is required to produce clear documentation to deliver a compliant building.

This one hour course consists of five chapters which cover the:

  • Adoption of the NCC, and how that relates to design practitioners.
  • NCC Governing Requirements that provide the rules and instructions for NCC compliant design.
  • Performance Solutions: when required and how to develop one.
  • Deemed-to-Satisfy Solution pathways and the important role of referenced documents.
  • NCC documentation requirements to demonstrate compliance.

Course outcome

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the roles and responsibilities of the states and territories, including adoption of the NCC.
  • Explain how the NCC Governing Requirements shape the development of compliant designs, and the available compliance pathways.
  • Determine when a design needs a Performance Solution and apply the four-step process to the design.
  • Describe the role of referenced documents for designing DTS Solutions.
  • Distinguish different forms of design documentation as evidence, and specify which NCC Volume(s) they apply to.

Practitioners taking part in the course should have some prior knowledge, understanding and experience in the practical application of the NCC and of local building regulations.
