NZS 3604:2011 Timber framed buildings cited in Building Code

19/02/2012

Acceptable Solution B1/AS1 is a supporting document to the Building Code clause for Structure (B1). Between August 2011 and 31 January 2012, which was a transition period, both NZS 3604:1999 Timber-framed buildings and NZS 3604:2011 Timber-framed buildings were referenced as Acceptable Solutions in B1/AS1.

From 1 February 2012, NZS 3604:2011 only is the cited document in B1/AS1 as an Acceptable Solution for the structural design of light timber-framed buildings. Builders, architects, engineers, designers, and students for the design and construction of timber-framed structures not requiring specific engineering design should ensure they have the latest version. NZS 3604 is a core resource for building consent authorities determining compliance with the New Zealand Building Code using the latest version.
