AS2870 and AS3798 - The Unauthorised Biography of the Residential Footings Code and Things we need to know.

The presentation will cover the development and key considerations of both Codes from a predominantly Geotechnical but also, to a lesser extent, Structural Engineering viewpoint. Some matters will be highlighted regarding site classification, footing system design and certification of domestic footings. These issues are also of concern for builders, the QBCC, and the wider community, and generate complaints about the conduct of Engineers. John will be speaking from a background of involvement with AS2870 since 1986 in various roles ranging from researcher to investigation of complaints for the BPEQ.
