The process for developing Performance Solutions A2.2(4) is now in effect.

What this means is that the NCC provisions for developing Performance Solutions is now legislated under the NCC Governing Requirements, and must be used by all practitioners when developing Performance Solutions.

To raise further awareness and assist in providing better understanding to practitioners affected by the new provision, the ABCB has produced a number of supporting materials.

Below are the available resources for this process


The Handbook: Performance Solution Process assists in understanding and developing Performance Solutions and NCC terms and terminology used in the Performance Solution process.  It also expands each step in the process.
