Our crane truck helped to save Ausbuild labour, time (and money) as we were able to drop materials at specific locations on site
What does the National Construction Code (NCC) require?
For facades and internal elements:
- Must be a recognised material in the building code. If non-compliant, it needs to be proposed as an alternative solution. Fibre cement must comply with AS2908. Eg. Mg0 boards typically do not comply with FC AS2908.
- Non-combustibility (C1.12) – material must be deemed non-combustible, or satisfy performance requirements for non-combustibility.
- Materials Group Number (A2.4) – for a material tested to AS/NZS3837, the material Group Number must be determined in accordance with NCC Vol. 1 A2.4.
- Is the material certified for a ‘wall’ or only an ‘attachment’? Check the certificate to make sure the material is suitable for a wall, not just for an attachment onto a wall.
