NZS 4219:2009 Seismic performance of engineering systems in buildings

This is a standard that will be particularly useful for sub-trade work in multi-storey apartment and commercial buildings.  It covers the design, construction and installation of seismic restraints for engineering systems such as air-handling units, tanks, cabinets, pipework and ductwork.  To demonstrate compliance with the New Zealand Building Code’s earthquake resistance requirements, it must be read along with Verification Method B1/VM1.
