2016 NCC Change: Now you can aim higher with timber
Full price: $134.00
Until now, the choice of construction materials for mid-rise urban developments has been
limited to a traditional palette that excluded timber. However changes to the National
Construction Code (NCC) from 1 May will enable timber buildings of up to eight storeys
without the need for expensive Alternative Solutions to gain approval.
This seminar aims to deliver a hands-on workshop that will work through the WoodSolutions
Technical Guide on mid-rise timber buildings and provide attendees with the knowledge to
confidently implement the NCC changes.
