SCNZ has created the NZ Structural Steelwork Specification in Compliance with AS/NZS 5131. This generic specification has been configured to apply to general structural steel framing for buildings and structures. The specification is intended to be the implementation tool used to embed the requirements of the recently published New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 5131 (Structural Steelwork – Fabrication and Erection) into New Zealand engineering and steelwork procurement practice. The specification:
The intent of this document is to standardise the specification of structural steelwork requirements across New Zealand. This will significantly increase efficiencies in project delivery and cost, improve quality and compliance, and provide long term value. In combination with ‘Steel Fabrication Certification’ (SFC) of SCNZ Structural Steel Contractors, our community can expect minimised risk, fit-for-purpose, value engineered outcomes for structural steelwork projects in New Zealand.
This document is designed to be updated regularly based on review and feedback received. SCNZ encourages you to provide feedback to improve the document.
