Building Bye-Laws

Building bye-laws set standards for building work. Their purpose is to protect building users by making sure that all buildings are safe and healthy places in which to live and work. The building bye-laws also aim to protect the environment through setting requirements to ensure energy efficiency in building. They are also concerned with making access to buildings easier for people with disabilities.
