The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) develops, maintains and publishes the National Construction Code (NCC) of Australia. In 2002 the ABCB established in-house authoring and publishing using the XML language. The XML authoring tool required the development of a highly customised DTD which was principally designed to output hard copy publications but was also manipulated using XSLT’s to establish the initial NCC Online.
The requirement to review and re-design the NCC schema came about through ABCB projects addressing readability, usability, structural consistency and digitisation and also the need to align with Australian Government policies to address mobility and accessibility. The need to achieve an open standard (Extensible Mark-up Language (XML)) model such as Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) is an important goal for the NCC content to be re-used in other applications such as Building Information Modelling (BIM).
Accordingly, the Department invites suitably qualified consultants/contractors to submit a tender for the review and re-design of the Information Architecture for NCC XML content.
