National construction Code Performance Solutions

Presented by: Australian Building Codes Board.

Introduction: This course provides guidance and understanding of matters that impact the development and acceptance of Performance Solutions.

Course outline

Performance Solutions are a pathway enabling design practitioners to use innovative approaches to meeting a brief while still complying with the National Construction Code (NCC) Performance Requirements. The 90 minute course will answer questions for practitioners such as:

  • How and when should a Performance Solution be used?
  • What goes into a performance-based design brief (PBDB)?
  • Who is responsible for their preparation?
  • How do you assess and verify compliance?

In addition to content addressing these questions, the course will cover the four-step process for creating and documenting Performance Solutions introduced in NCC 2019 Amendment 1, which will come into effect 1 July 2021. It will also provide an overview of how a PBDB should be developed and tailored to a specific project’s needs.

The course consists of two chapters:

  • Chapter 1: Introduction to Performance Solutions
  • Chapter 2: The four-step process for developing a Performance Solution
