Building industry participants in regional WA are invited to free information seminars on important changes coming up in the Building Code of Australia (BCA) 2019 edition.
Spanning nine locations from Esperance to Broome during March, the events are presented by the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety’s Building and Energy team (formerly the Building Commission).
The seminars aim to help builders, building surveyors, architects, designers and others in the building sector understand the BCA changes as well as amendments to State building legislation.
“This is an excellent opportunity for practitioners involved with designing, approving or constructing buildings to gain first-hand knowledge about important changes to the BCA and WA’s Building Regulations 2012,” Building Commissioner Ken Bowron said.
“The BCA was previously updated annually and the 2019 seminars will be the first since the switch to a three-year amendment cycle, meaning it’s an ideal time to come along and find out what’s changed.”
The seminars are relevant to all building types, with a particular focus on residential construction and navigating the BCA’s new-look structure and layout.
