Building a house involves a huge number of building materials and products. They all need to be ‘fit for purpose’ and safe to use.
All buildings, including houses, need to comply with the National Construction Code (NCC). Hence the NCC is essentially your guide to building a home that is ‘fit for purpose’. Your choice of building materials will be checked as part of getting a building approval and during construction by the building surveyor.
Making sure you buy products that meet the requirements of the NCC will help you:
If you don’t comply you put your reputation and livelihood at risk, not to mention the safety of the building’s occupants.
