Australian code to design for Temporary Works

Recommended Posts

The British Standard I referred to is BS5975 Code of practice for temporary works procedures and the permissible stress design of falsework. It has three parts:

  • General
  • Procedural of Temporary Works
  • Falsework

This code provides guidance for falsework design in the last part.

Some of the Australian design standards relating to temporary works are the following:

  • AS 1418.4-2004 Cranes, hoists and winches Tower cranes
  • AS/NZS 1576 Scaffolding (multiple volumes)
  • AS 1657:2013 Fixed platforms, walkways, stairways and ladders – Design, construction and installation
  • AS 3610:1995 Formwork for concrete
  • AS 3850:2003 Tilt-up concrete construction
  • AS 2601-2001 The demolition of structures
  • AS 4991-2004 Lifting devices - SAI Global

It really depends on what you are after though. There are a lot of practice notes and guidelines nationally and internationally to research.
