We are working with the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) and other jurisdictions complying with the accessible housing requirements, to design a range of guides and training material for you to access.
To assist with understanding of how to comply with the step-free entry provisions the Queensland Government has prepared the Australian Building Codes Board Liveable Housing Design Standard: Implementation of step-free entry provisions report (PDF, 2534.69 KB).
The report relates to the step-free path of travel required from the site entry to the dwelling entry for detached housing in a suburban context. The report includes ABCB Liveable housing design standard case studies (PDF, 5878.66 KB) to demonstrate the practical implementation of, and appropriate exemptions to the National Construction Code (NCC) 2022 provisions.
It is intended that this report will form part of an assessable homes guideline to be released by the ABCB, to assist users interpret the new provisions.
As the guideline is yet to be finalised, the report is being released by us, as a separate component to assist users interpret the related preview of NCC 2022 provisions.
We will provide more information as it becomes available.
