Feedback on Report 390 Fabrication issues with imported steelwork truss in Australia

As Chair of Standards Australia Committee BD/1 which is responsible for AS 4100 Steel Structures, and AS/NZS 5131 Structural Steelwork – Fabrication and Erection, we are in the process of a major revision to these standards to deal with some of the issues cited.

Basically we are removing fabrication and erection provisions from AS 4100 and including most of them as appropriate in AS/NZS 5131. We are then making direct reference to AS/NZS 5131 from AS 4100. The main intent of this is to make AS/NZS 5131 a secondary reference to AS 4100 within the National Construction Code. This means that AS 4100 can now include reference to the construction specification as the document containing the particular design data and details to be provided as one deliverable from the design process.

The revised standards are expected to go out for public review in May 2019. It is hoped that the revised standards go some way to address some of the issues raised by CROSS-AUS.

My sincere congratulations to all who contributed to achieve the launch of CROSS-AUS, not least to IStructE for its support. Better engineering will be the winner, and its service to society.
