Free seminar on changes to Building Code

Those working in the South West building industry are invited to free information seminars about important changes coming up in the Building Code of Australia 2019 edition.  

The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety’s Building and Energy team will present half-day events in Busselton on March 21 and in Bunbury on March 22.

Building Commissioner Ken Bowron said it was an ideal to come along and find out what had changed. 

“This is an excellent opportunity for practitioners involved with designing, approving or constructing buildings to gain first-hand knowledge about important changes to the Building Code of Australia and WA’s Building Regulations 2012,” he said.  

“The Building Code of Australia was previously updated annually and the 2019 seminars will be the first since the switch to a three-year amendment cycle."

The seminars will aim to help builders, building surveyors, architects, designers and others in the building sector understand the Building Code of Australia changes as well as amendments to State building legislation.

The sessions are relevant to all building types, with a particular focus on residential construction and navigating the Building Code of Australia's new-look structure and layout.

Places at the free seminar are limited so registration is essential.
