Condensation in Buildings Handbook

This non-mandatory handbook produced by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) is intended to assist architects, designers and builders in the assessment and the management of the risk of condensation and its consequences in the contemporary industry environment and should be read in conjunction with the Building Code of Australia (BCA) provisions of the National Construction Code (NCC) relating to damp and weather-proofing, and energy efficiency in all classes of buildings.

While a common cause of moisture-related problems is due to water ingress, the focus of this handbook is controlling moisture within the building's fabric resulting from condensation.

The Handbook should be read in conjunction with your relevant state or territory building legislation.
