Commercial building alterations

You'll need to consider some specific requirements if you're altering a commercial building, changing its use, or subdividing it.

Commercial and public buildings have special requirements under the Building Act, to make sure that they're accessible to people with disabilities, and to keep people safe in case of fire or other emergencies.
