    Default Wanted BCA 2011 Vol 2?

    Greetings People,

    To cut a long story short I need a copy of VOL2 of the 2011 BCA, the one that deals with residential building. I went to the SAI Global website intent on purchasing it but they only seem to offer a $1700/$1800 subscription service (either that or I am losing my touch at finding things on the net).

    Some searching away from SAI did find an illustrated version by another company, but I have reservations about shelling out the $310 for it because I dont know if it actually contains the BCA or is just a supplement to be used with the BCA.

    Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    Go to your nearest Uni that has Architectural / Construction degrees, they will have it in their library, as well as the commentary, free to read, 20c a page to copy for educational purposes.

    Hi racingtadpole,

    Hope this is not too late for you.... You can get it free in most local libraries. Better still my librarian said that if it "times out" while on it - "then here's the account no. and password for this library" - Bingo! My building inspector passed on some info from the BCA - the PDF he sent via email is a scanned copy from a TAFE College! Friends in high places!
    Cheers - P-2
