/ NEW BUILDINGS
For the construction of a new building, the Building Code of Australia requires under Clause D3.2 for access for people with a disability to be provided to the building from the allotment boundary, from another building on the allotment and from an accessible car parking space on the allotment.
/ BUILDING WORKS AND ALTERATIONS
Alterations however, to an existing building that requires an “affected part” upgrade under the Premises Standards, only applies to the principal pedestrian entrance and therefore does not apply to the existing access ways to the entrance from the allotment boundary, another building on the allotment or from an accessible car parking space on the allotment. The principal pedestrian entrance only includes the doorway, external steps and ramps which are associated with the entrance and which forms part of the building.
