Balcony sprinkler protection fact sheet

Friday January 29 2016

The VBA has created a new fact sheet covering the Building and Plumbing Amendment (Balcony Sprinkler Protection) Interim Regulations 2015.

These new regulations have been made to amend the National Construction Code in Victoria so that all new multi-storey residential buildings, hotels, healthcare buildings and aged care buildings that are required to install sprinklers designed to AS 2118.1, must extend that sprinkler protection to include all covered balconies, regardless of size.

The changes have been in place since 15 December 2015 and will be implemented as Victorian variations to the National Construction Code in 2016.
