The requirements of performance, as well as thegeneral supporting requirements, are the main code requirements. Masonry accessories have asatisfactory performance requirement if considered in installation and construction in either theAS 4773 or AS 3700.Question 4The standard has execution, specification and control earthwork testing guidance and is associated withresidential and commercial site preparation developments. In itself, it does not constitute earthworkspecification and with the specifier considering the project guideline applicability.States the roofing needs protection from debris as well as loose materials in the process of construction.Also, there needs to be the allocation of thermal movement in the process of installation. A movementshould be in joints as well as fastenings. There has to be the material separation between incompatiblematerials. Cleaning should be done to remove any foreign materials.Question 5The three criteria used for DST are;Formulation of performance solution whereby there is a combination of one or more of;verification method, suitability evidence, comparing the deemed-to-satisfy method to theperformance solution and expert judgement.Use of Deemed-to-satisfy solution by using a combination of these two; expert judgement andsuitability evidence.
Combining the deemed-to-satisfy solutions with performance solutions.Question 6aUse of recycled materials, use of steel construction materials and the use of dry but light materials.Question 6bThe requirements leading to satisfaction of the deemed-to-satisfy involve complying with;Resistance from different combined actions.Determining of individual actions.Determining the material structural resistance and construction forms.Resistance to loads such as live loads. Dead loads and combined loads.Question 7Levels of fire resistance are to be graded according to the specifications of the type. In type A, thefollowing order of criteria has to be followed in fire resistance construction;Structural adequacy.Integrity.Insulation.In addition to these, the certifier has to issue an approval document with necessary schedules of safetymeasures, lists, occupation certificate, determinations, and certificate of classification as well as thecertificate of compliance. An issuance of these documents allows rating of elements of safety in the fire.Non-compliant buildings have to be nominated in logbooks of safety measures for annual statements.Question 8The criteria include;Structural adequacy where the structure’s ability to maintain the capacity to bear load and stability aftertesting is determined. The structure is deemed to fail if there is a collapse of the element or if theelement has deflection rate that is excessive to the prescribed limits.The integrity that entails the door’s ability to keep off flames as well as hot gases if tested to thesespecifications. Failure is deemed when flaming occurs continuously on the side of the door that is notexposed. Also, failure occurs when openings exist allowing flames to reveal themselves.Insulation whereby a door could maintain the temperature to a specified value below the limit on theexposed surface to flames if tested accordingly. It is deemed to fail when temperature from a side that isnot exposed riding to exceed the predetermined value.Question 9An active determination is assessed by the installation or presence of communicating, detecting andsmoke control devices that could inform instances of the outbreak of fire. This is a proactive way ofextinguishing the fire. Such devices include;Fire Break Glass Alarm.
Usable fire extinguishers.Thermal and smoke detectors.A passive determination is assessed by the full-scale test of an incorporated structural system with theprotection against fire by evaluation of the effectiveness of materials used for protection. There arenumerous methods used in the method that include;Timber encasing.Concrete filling.Flame shields.Question 10Every individual solution has a unique performance solution. The solutions used are usually flexible inattaining the outcomes together with the used technology. Solutions in performance would directlyaddress the required performance by the use of one or any other recommended method of assessment.An alternative solution is known as the solution in the building that would comply with the requiredperformance as well as satisfying the provisions put in place in the deemed-to-satisfy criterion.An example that falls under alternative solution is hinged-do0r automation. This method allows theprovision of better solutions in building and allows the provision of greater accessibility levels for usersin the concerned building.Question 11Three drawing copies of that show the floor plan for each level, sections, elevations, sizes,dimensions and scaled structural member locations.Three specified copies describing the methods and materials that are to be used forconstructing.The use statement or the intended use of the building to be indicated on the plan allotment.Three allotment plan copies that are scaled to not less than 1:500 or any other approved scalethat show the set sub-regulations.Report or computational copy demonstrating the building‘s construction of compliance.Question 12Documents of submission as well as approval plans, duties of the site supervisors, and constructionbuilders, a design of the building and its construction, installation of the building’s exterior features, thebuilding’s occupation and miscellaneous features included.Question 13Detail drawings, component drawing, block plan, assembly drawings, floor plans, site plans, scaledrawings, perspective, technical drawings and concept drawingsQuestion 14In multiple classifications, every building’s part has to be categorized separately as follows;
