NZS 3604 is New Zealand’s most sought-after standard. It provides methods and details that are used to design many NZ timber-framed houses and small buildings, including many residential decks. Builders, architects, engineers, designers and students will find it useful. NZS 3604 can be used for timber-framed buildings with one, two or certain configurations of three storeys. It provides a way of complying with the New Zealand Building Code requirements for the structure of those buildings, including their foundations, framing layout, member sizes, bracing systems, fixings and connectors when read along with the Acceptable Solution B1/AS1.
