Comprehensive and free presentation to provide you with a thorough understanding of Sydney Water requirements for building adjacent to and over their assets, standard assets (in scope) and more complex assets (out of scope). Essential information for all architects, as part of your planning stage, and in the construction phase.
– MGP Building & Infrastructure Services
This CPD will explain how to identify the correct external above ground waterproofing design response to meet a project brief by understanding the requirements of the NCC, appropriate material selection, structural design considerations and potential risks.
– Dulux / Fosroc
This presentation will explore weatherproofing defects, building design and compliance with the 2022 NCC. The learning outcomes include:
• Recognise the impact of weatherproofing and the importance of compliance
• Recognise the NCC requirements for weatherproofing
• Explain the process of the AS4284 Testing
• Interpret and apply the AS4284 Test Results
• Explain how to design a compliant wall system for an actual project
The Specifying Fibre Cement for Residential & Commercial Buildings CPD discusses how to specify and the use of fibre cement in interior and exterior applications. Additionally, learning how Fibre Cement is used in wall systems to meet the NCC requirements and how different architectural outcomes are achieved.
– BGC Fibre Cement
This CPD presentation discusses fire rating and combustibility of internal lining and external façade products. It is crucial to ensure all relevant building codes are met in the interests of the occupants of buildings.
– BGC Fibre Cement / Plasterboard
The Specifying Plasterboard for Residential & Commercial Buildings CPD discusses in depth plasterboard’s evolution to meet aesthetic, financial, and technical needs. The presentation navigates the complex requirements for partitions and linings, considering building types and technical support.
– BGC Plasterboard
Explain the adverse impacts of environmental noise. Describe methods of mitigating environmental noise during the pre-design, design, and construction stages of a project. Identify the different types of noise barriers and their respective applications for noise control. Evaluate the key design considerations in implementing noise barriers. Select appropriate noise barrier materials to suit specific project requirements.
– Modular Walls
Learn how to investigate, evaluate and specify light weight acoustic ceilings systems based upon an understanding of technical performance and the requirements of building standards.
In this presentation, attendees will learn about wall systems under the NCC, paths to compliance, and what the C1V3 verification method is.
Participants of this CPD will explore the key considerations associated with specifying external above grade waterproofing. You will learn about the relevant clauses within the 2022 National Construction Code that are associated with the design and specification of external, above grade waterproofing and be able to describe the critical clauses within AS 4654.
