Concrete

Australian Standard Method of Measurement (ASSM):

  • Section 6
  • We use the ASSM to describe the scope for demolition work as a guide only
  • Any agreed or contract scope of work will more than likely vary from the scope of work under the ASSM
  • The scope of work set out in Rawlinsons also varies from the scope of work under the ASSM
  • The ASSM often includes the same items of work under multiple Section

Scope of work under ASSM:

  • In-situ concrete including footings | slabs, waffle or similar slabs, external pavings, roads | walls | columns and beams | casing to steelwork | stairs | copings, kerbs, urinal steps and similar items | ducts, channels or box drains | bearings | reglets | expansion and similar joints | scabbing | cutting concrete | kerbs, gutters, etc | blinding | integral finishes | surface hammering and blasting
  • Formwork including face to footings | soffits to slabs | faces to walls, faces to retaining walls, faces to core walls, inside faces of shaft core walls | sides of columns, sides of piers, sides and soffits of beams, sides and soffits of lintels | soffits of stair flights | edges, steps | top formwork, surfaces of cornices, surfaces of mouldings | waffle form or similar systems | penetrations | recesses, similar items | formations | chamfers, splayed internal angles | raking cutting, circular cutting
  • Permanent metal formwork system including soffits of slabs | faces of walls, faces of retaining walls, faces of core walls, inside faces of shaft core walls | sides of columns, sides of piers, sides and soffits of beams | sides and soffits of lintels | soffits of stair flights | edges, steps | special starter panels, special closer panels | closing ends of panels | penetrations | raking cutting, circular cutting | welding, power fixing | shear connectors
  • Reinforcement including bars, bars as helical reinforcement, bars as ties | fabric | trench mesh | special clamps
  • Prestressing including cores or ducts | filing recesses and shear keys | stressing steel
  • Slip formed construction including slip formwork | blockouts | integral surfaces finishes
  • Precast concrete including walls, columns, beams, slab units, stairlights, lintels and similar structural units | in-situ formwork, temporary supports, copings, cornices, kerbs, sills, treads and similar items | crib block walls | loose erection fittings | field wielding | caulking and backing
  • Tanking including asphalt membranes, bituminous membranes and similar items | collars | skirtings, coves, turn-ups and similar items | asphalt damp proof courses
