Hello! This is Episode 285. In it, I’m kicking off a series we’ll be running on the podcast over the next few months all about the National Construction Code. You’ll learn more about what it is, the updates and changes that have and continue to be made to it, and what you need to know about how it impacts your renovation or new build.
This episode is part of a special series on the National Construction Code, and NCC 2022.

The National Construction Code (or NCC) is Australia’s regulatory framework for building and renovating all kinds of projects, not just residential homes. It’s a performance-based code that sets out the minimum level of performance that buildings, building elements, and plumbing and drainage systems must meet in Australia.
I know we have lots of non Australian listeners to the podcast. So whilst the introductory episodes I’m doing on the NCC will be specific to Australia, there is SO much coming in this series that will be super helpful wherever you’re located. If you’re keen to know more about building for thermal comfort, with durability, longevity and home health in mind, this will be great information. So be sure to check out the upcoming episodes.
The NCC is updated every 3 years, however the latest 2022 update is one of the biggest updates so far, and its adoption has been delayed until this year, and is occurring differently around the country.
So, in this episode, I’m going to share information about what the NCC is and how it works. I’ll also be sharing some of the updates made in our latest NCC2022. And I’ll take you through the information you’ll be hearing about in the upcoming episodes.
