Standards New Zealand is developing a scope for revising NZS 3604:2011 Timber-framed buildings, which has been commissioned by the Building Performance Branch of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
A scoping group, which includes representatives of various organisation that use NZS 3604, was formed to consider new features for consideration to be included in the scope of a future project to revise NZS 3604.
The scoping group has proposed seven new features for NZS 3604 and is now seeking your feedback on these features. Those new features are:
1. Solutions for improved thermal performance
2. Foundation solutions for expansive soils
3. Foundation solutions for liquefaction-prone soils
4. Steel bracing elements for wide openings
5. Support systems for long-span beams, lintels, and trusses
6. Framing around internal stairwells
7. Isolated internal masonry walls
Your feedback is required to ensure NZS 3604 will continue to meet the needs of more than just those who can be represented by the scoping group. The scoping group will also consider any suggestions of other features that would provide significant benefits for you and others who use the standard.
