National Structural Steelwork Specification

ASI has created the new ‘National Structural Steelwork Specification’ (NSSS) as a convenient implementation tool for industry to ingrain the AS/NZS 5131 requirements. The NSSS presents:

  • A standardised template for creating project-specific and/or company specific specifications for structural steelwork.
  • Relies on AS/NZS 5131 for the definition of good practice.
  • Editable AS/NZS 5131 project-specific selections for you to configure the specification for your particular project or company.
  • The structure to define the Construction Category for your project or component.
  • A consistent set of ‘Standard Drawing Notes’.
