Building classes

The Building Act 2011 adopts the Building Code of Australia (BCA), being Volumes One and Two of the National Construction code series (NCC), as the primary applicable standard for all new building and demolition work. 

Buildings are classified under the BCA by the purpose for which they are designed, constructed, or adapted to be used and may attract a number of classes and be described as a mixed use building.

If you wish to find a list of different building classes (Class 1 to Class 10) and an explanation of each class refer to the Department of Commerce

A building surveyor is responsible for determining the classification of the building or incidental structure before signing a certificate of compliance.
