HISTORY OF BUILDING REGULATION

  
1740 B.C.
1667
“Si aedificaveris domum novam, facies tabulatum per circuitum in tecto tuo; nec pones sanguinem in domo tua, si quispiam ceciderit ex duo.”  The bible passage, as translated by Young states: “When thou buildest a new house then thou hast made a parapet to thy roof and thou doest not put blood upon thy house when one falleth from it” (Deuteronomy 22.8)
750 B.C.
The following acts and ordinanced determine how buildings are required to be constructed in NSW and before they separated, New Zealand, Queensland, Victoria and most of South Australia and the Northern Territory.. Reference to the legislation is necessary to determine the correct method of construction and therefore identification of construction defects. The ruling legislation at the time of construction will probably reflect the current condition of consent for unaltered buildings. To depart from the development consent will necessitite a new Development Application and Consent. Refer to our development chronology for an indication of the age of your house or commercial development
