They comprise a uniform set of technical provisions for the design and construction of buildings – structure, fire, health and amenity etc. The relevant sections refer to Class 2 – a building containing 2 or more dwelling units (eg: flats, apartments). Guidelines for the sound insulation and acoustic properties of walls between adjoining units in multi-residential buildings are set out in Building Code of Australia - Volume 1.
