This episode is part of a special series on the National Construction Code, and NCC 2022.
Listen to the episode now.
Hello! This is episode 290, and in it, I’m continuing my conversation with Building Surveyor, Laura Terrnova, from Deemed to Perform Consulting.
If you haven’t listened to Part 1 of my conversation with Laura in Episode 289, be sure to do that first, as this one will make a lot more sense once you do. You can find that by heading to Episode 289.
In this episode, we jump into the detail of Performance Solutions. Laura helps us understand more about what they mean, what might trigger the need for them, how you’ll need to go about acquiring them, and who will need to be involved.
For anyone doing a custom project, it may be very difficult to do a fully Deemed to Satisfy approval process. And you may also seriously limit your design, material and construction options if you insist on following a fully Deemed to Satisfy pathway.
So, understanding Performance Solutions will be super helpful for you to demystify what they are, and how to shape your project and project team to accommodate them.
Now, let’s dive in!
Let me remind you about Laura Terrnova from Deemed to Perform Consulting.
As a registered building surveyor with the VBA (Victorian Building Authority) and an accredited member of the Australian Institute of Building Surveyors, Laura possesses the necessary qualifications and expertise to deliver exceptional services.
Laura’s journey in the building industry began as an architectural drafter, allowing her to gain valuable insights into design principles and construction techniques. Over time, she transitioned into technical, compliance, and project management roles, showcasing her proficiency in modular and offshore procured building products.
Now with nearly two decades of experience as a relevant building surveyor, Laura is guiding Deemed To Perform to become a leader in the residential construction space, becoming a key resource for designers and developers to lean on throughout the life of their projects.
When it comes to the content I’ve been sharing about the National Construction Code updates, we’ve been talking about a lot of terminology rich info. Terms such as Verification Method, Performance Solution, and Deemed to Satisfy, plus loads more.
I know this can seem like a LOT to the uninitiated, so I do hope my conversation with Laura is super helpful to clarify these things for you, and gives you a better understanding of the people and processes involved.
Let’s jump into my conversation with Laura now.
