Structural Steel

Structural Steel

Australian Standard Method of Measurement (ASSM):

  • Section 9
  • We use the ASSM to describe the scope for structural steel 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 Sections

Scope of work under ASSM:

  • Structural steel including columns, beams, rafters | purlins and girts | bracing | temporary bracing | attached connections and fitted stiffeners | loose connections | rigid frames | trusses, lattice girders and open web joists | verandahs and awnings | staircases | rails | standard proprietary purlins, girts and accessories | bolts | hold down bolt assemblies | shear studs | ties | wrapping | wedges and grouting | surface treatments | field work | holes and sinkings | sundries

Australian/New Zealand Standards:

  • Design, fabrication, erection and modification: AS 4100-1998 and AS 4100 Supp 1-1999 | AS 3828-1998
  • Welding: AS/NZS 1554.1:2004 to AS/NZS 1554 Set:2010 | WTIA TN 11-1998 | DR 08076 | DR 08077 CP
  • Protection and surface treatments (including paint): AS/NZS 2312:2002 and AS/NZS 2312:2002/Amdt 1:2004 | AS/NZS 3750.0:2008 to AS/NZS 3750.23:2008 | DR 05239 (Polysiloxane coating) | DR 09032 (Aluminium paint)

Other relevant Standards or Guidelines:
