MEDIA RELEASE: Queensland’s decision to delay new building standards should be followed by NSW

Urban Taskforce CEO, Tom Forrest, today commended the Queensland Government’s late decision to delay the introduction of new NCC building standards, as they apply to energy efficiency, until May 1, 2024. The Queensland Government has recognised the tough conditions facing the property and construction sector.

The deferral gives industry time to sort out supply chains and ensure they have the building materials necessary to meet the new standards.

Every other State has listened to the concerns of the sector.
