DZ 1170.5 Supp 1:2024 Commentary of Structural Design Actions - Part 5 Earthquake Actions

We are seeking feedback from across the engineering, building and property sectors on this draft Technical Specification which focuses on providing updated engineering guidance to determine earthquake loadings when designing new buildings. NZS 1170.5:2004 remains the referenced standard for compliance with the New Zealand Building Code. However, TS 1170.5 aims to provide a means for engineers to voluntarily test, and put into practice, new technical specifications within the context of the updated National Seismic Hazard Model (NSHM).
