Site Specific Engineering
Every building and its location are unique; therefore, every building must be engineered and designed to meet the appropriate wind region and site conditions. Such site conditions that need to be considered include topography, terrain, building classification and level of importance.
SITE SPECIFIC ENGINEERING? WHAT’S THIS?
Every engineered building from Diamond Tough is specifically designed and engineered for the site at which the building will be constructed. Site specific engineering is a set of engineering documents that are provided by our engineer exclusively for your site. These are your assurance and peace of mind that the engineer has seen and certified your project.
During the design process an assessment of your site’s wind region, topography, terrain, shielding, the level of importance and building classification. Using this information, Diamond Tough design team will determine the correct wind speed of your site and design the building accordingly.
SAME SITE OR DIFFERENT SITE?
The exact location on your site where your building will be erected is critical. Your site may be in a region that has a low wind speed, but the placement of your building maybe on the top of a hill and may increase your building’s site wind speed significantly. This in turn would alter the design of your building. We need to know exactly where you intend to build.
THE APPROVAL PROCESS
A Diamond Tough engineer will then review the information provided. Once assessed and approved, we will then forward the site-specific certification and engineering to you to enable council/shire approval.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Diamond Tough design software ensures this is a speedy process. In most cases, site specific certification can be provided within 72 hours unless there is an issue in the placement of the building within the boundaries of the property.
