NCC 2019  Using the NCC, Readabilty and Quantification &

NCC Fire Safety VM and new DTS Provisions for apartment buildings and other residential buildings

There are significant changes in the NCC for 2019 . This Presentation will discuss these changes where  including  the NCC Fire Safety update ,

NCC 2019 Update for structural fire safety.

 

This year the NCC2019 introduces significant changes to the way we are to design the fire safety and structural components in buildings. From fire testing of products to the calculations of structural members.

 

All this has been exposed from recent failures to Lacrosse Apartments and the Opal Neo200 Apartments in Sydney that highlight we are not processing designs adequately in the eyes of the community. And that’s true so what has to change?

 

This seminar will take us on a journey into the very near future of life as per 2019 building code and what design engineers must create for Certifiers who are required to undertake for their approvals with much more detailing.

If your an Architect, Engineer, Fire Contractor, Developer, Insurer or Certifier - this is one seminar you need to attend.

Readibility NCC 2019 

The NCC has undergone significant structural change to improve access, awareness and understanding.

This included introducing consistent governing requirements across all three Volumes and changes to the format and structure of NCC online.

 

NCC Volume Three has been redrafted consistent with a new information architecture that aims to improve access and readability of the document in a digital environment, as well as in preparation for a consistent volume structure in 2022.

Quantification NCC 2019 

The most significant change to the NCC since the performance-based code was introduced in 1996, is an estimated 40% of the Code’s Performance Requirements will be quantified either directly or by a NCC Verification Method (VM). This work stems from the Board’s increased and competent use of performance initiative aimed at assisting the reduction of non-compliance caused by poor application of Performance Solutions.

It is intended that the remaining Performance Requirements will be quantified in the same manner for NCC 2022.

NCC 2019 Fire Safety 

Fire Safety - New verification method and  New DTS Provisions for fire sprinkler systems, for apartment buildings and other residential buildings (i.e. Class 2 and 3 buildings) 4 storeys and above and up to 25 metres in effective height (generally those buildings 4 to 8 storeys).

Fire safety VM
A new, non-mandatory VM for fire safety introduced (NCC Schedule 7). This VM can be used for developing a Performance Solution for up to 24 Performance Requirements. Its adoption will be delayed until 1 May 2020 to allow time for training and support.
