The question of compliance with standards and codes can be a complex one.This is not a journey you need to take alone;Hopestar’s engineers are well versed in navigating this area and are there to support builders,contractors,architects and consulting engineers.An in-depth understanding of the applicable standards and codes is essential in the fast-paced environment of an active building site where questions and conflicts arise on matters as diverse as interaction between building elements,excessive vertical deflection,internal static pressures,building movement,and point loads applied to fire-rated walls,to name a few.Hopestar sits on the AWCI National Technical Committee and provides input and feedback into contemporary industry issues and the review of relevant standards.Commonly referenced standards and codes that govern cold-formed steel design are:
AS/NZS 1170.0:2002 Structural design actions–General principles
AS/NZS 1170.1:2002 Structural design actions–Part 1:Permanent,imposed&other actions
AS/NZS 1170.2:2011 Structural design actions–Part 2:Wind actions
AS 1170.4:2007 Structural design actions–Part 4:Earthquake actions in Australia
AS/NZS 2785:2020Suspended ceilings–Design&installation
NZS 1170.5:2004 structural design actions–Part 5:Earthquake actions in New Zealand
AS/NZS 4600:2018–Cold-formed steel structures
Australian National Construction Code(NCC)
New Zealand Building Codes(NZBC)
Recent events have given rise to closer scrutiny of seismic compliance on construction projects.For many installers of non-structural building elements,compliance can be a complex and onerous task.But it doesn’t have to be.Hopestar’s engineers and our certifying partners have the technical expertise and practical know-how to provide straight-forward seismic solutions for walls and ceilings of all shapes and sizes.Our seismic solutions have been developed through scientific research into past earthquakes,advances in computer simulations and analysis,component level testing,knowledge sharing with our US-based partner team and collaboration with experienced seismic engineering consultants.When you use Hopestar’s advanced seismic solutions,you can build with confidence.
