Digitising the Building Code
The Building performance team has started work to digitise the Building Code due to growing demands from building professionals who want vital information in a format that is portable, dynamic, feature-rich and digital. We have delivered the first of our Building Code PDF documents (B1, C/AS2, D1 and E2) into our digital reader.
