Understanding and Implementing the New NCC Accessible Housing Requirements – Livable Housing Australia (LHA)- Design Guidelines
After much work across a wide range of sectors, the National Building Ministers Forum has agreed that new minimum accessibility Standards, based on the Silver Performance Level of the Livable Housing Australia (LHA) Design Guidelines, will be incorporated into the National Construction Code (NCC). Ministers also agreed that a voluntary Gold Level technical standard for accessible housing will be developed, which incorporates a higher level of accessibility requirements. It will be left to each State to determine if they wish to adopt Gold instead of Silver.
What does this mean for housing? What does this mean for Architects, Designers, Building Surveyors Builders, Planners and Developers?
Access Institute has worked closely with LHA for more than 10 years supporting the implementation of the LHA Design Guidelines and training LHA Design Guideline Assessors. This 1.5 hour online session, live via Zoom, provides an overview of the LHA Design Guidelines, how they are interpreted and implemented and what this new initiative means for stakeholders in the housing sector.
Get on the front foot today and learn what the new requirements are and what benefits and opportunities are afforded by this new approach to housing for the community, Australia wide.
