The most recent iteration of the National Construction Code (NCC 2022) includes several changes that relate to plumbing and drainage systems. It includes new provisions for the waterproofing of wet areas and weatherproofing of external walls; a provision associated with falls for floor wastes; new requirements around pipe sizing; and more.
NCC 2022 also references the concept ‘Livable Housing Design’ – the creation of homes that meet the needs of their occupants, including those with ambulatory challenges, as they change across their lifetimes.
This change has implications for a range of things, including drainage systems and those who specify them. To take one example, the new provision requires all new homes to include at least one accessible bathroom and shower on its ground floor.
In this CPD Live session, we outline all of these plumbing-related NCC changes and illuminate the ways that one class of products, linear drainage systems, can help ensure you comply with or exceed them.
