Structural requirements and codes have been revised for the Australian construction industry and with NCC 2019 now in legislation. New responsibilities are placed on the Structural Engineer, Architect and Certifier. This event looks at these challenges of new documentation regimes to demonstrate compliance and meet “Conforming Products” legislation for fabrication and designs. Applying reference codes, including AS4100, AS5131, AS4600, AS3600, AS3700, AS2327 is presented and how to verify reactions in fire action and their impact in NCC B1.4 and BV1 for reliability of building construction.
The certification of structures and fire protection is in front of each State Legislator in Australia. This seminar will inform you of these changes that will affect all those creating new designs, selecting fire rated products and certifying structures for compliance. Structural Engineers can be at the forefront of legacy legal claims and damages from structures that have failed in a fire, and Professional Indemnity (PI) impact to engineers is highlighted in our discussion panel with a Hypothetical case as an effective way in mitigation of risk and failure.
With a renewed national focus on Building Certification being demanded after recent events and years of poor design, fabrication workmanship and failures in fire, now is the time to understand how collaboration in the early design of structures,
This seminar will deliver an understanding of recent research on what ways are best suited, how to successfully implement systems for Certification to NCC 2019 with the support of the fire engineers and architects, and to protect your PI and risk profile.
