Transportable Buildings draft COP

Transportable Buildings draft Code of Practice

Over the past few years the number of prefabricated and almost completely constructed buildings being imported into New Zealand, in particular, has steadily increased. Where such a building is to be permanently attached to a foundation or the like, the Building Act 2004 makes it clear that such transportable buildings are required to comply with the provisions of the Act.

For this reason, BEAL Certification has begun the development of a draft Code of Practice covering the ‘performance requirements’ that could be used as the basis for demonstrating compliance and therefore suitable for an appliction for the entire building receiving ‘certification’.

Avaialable from this link is a document in pdf format that explains the basic requirements of any ‘transportable building’, whether small or large.
