NCC Design of Mid-rise Timber Building-Overview

This course provides an overview to changes to the NCC’s DTS provisions that allow the use of lightweight and massive timber construction systems in several classes of building up to an effective height of 25m. This is termed Mid-rise timber building. The course contents include: 

  • The course and the 2016 changes to the NCC

  • Timber Construction options

  • Overview of DTS solutions

  • Onsite considerations

Completing the learning resources in this course can help you understand key requirements for planning for a mid-rise timber building compliant with the NCC’s DTS provisions.
