The Development & Technical Department provides advice to members on a broad range of technical, planning and environmental matters including the Development Act, National Construction Code (NCC), Building Code of Australia (BCA), Australian Standards, State and Federal Legislation, new products and current on-site practises.

As construction techniques and building designs continue to develop and challenge the boundaries of modern architectural and engineering concepts, Master Builders SA remains at the cutting edge of new methods of construction and regulatory requirements with the aim of keeping members informed with regular workshops, Member Alerts and articles in the SA Builder Magazine.
