The structural provisions of the National Construction Code (NCC) are an integral part of the building standards in Australia. These provisions set out the minimum performance and reliability of a building or structure to resist design actions which it may reasonably expect to be subjected too.
It is a Structural Engineers’ role to determine how a building or structure should be designed or constructed to address the structural provisions of the NCC. A Structural Engineer may use one, or a combination of test certificates, engineering calculations, specifications & structural drawings, to certify that a material, product, form of construction or design fulfils these provisions. The documentation listed above is provided as evidence to support that the design & construction is suitable and addresses all structural applicable building standards.
Generally, all buildings and structures that require a Building Permit will need some form of evidence from a Structural Engineer to show how a building or structure should be designed and constructed. Specialised Building Solutions can provide the below structural engineering services…
