From interior finishes through to structural damage, this wide-ranging collection of resources includes structural grades, span tables and durability tests to assist with building and design compliance.

Software & design resources from industry bodies and major suppliers provide additional tools for modern building design.


Now you can do even more to evaluate the environmental aspects of building design with AccuRate. The new ECO2 module, enables Accurate to calculate the embodied CO2 in a proposed design.

An ECO2 module has been developed for integration into AccuRate by CSIRO's National Climate Adaptation...

The Design Capacity Tables for Timber (DCTT) is a design aid for structural engineers. It provides assistance in the limit states modelling of timber behaviour and can be used for:

  • Design - the selection of members to carry given design loads
...

It is advisable that you first read DCTT - Part A, as this section contains supporting documents for the data.

The Design Capacity Tables for Timber (DCTT) is a design aid for...

Regardless of the durability qualities of a material type, it is important for the designer to consider the level of maintenance, repair or replacement that may be required within the design life of the structure.

Designing durable...

About this resource
The building industry and building owners have an interest in reducing the risk of termite attack on houses. In pursuing this interest, it was found that the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) were in a position to shed light on the...

Machine stress-grading uses a machine to bend each piece of timber (generally about its minor axis). The machine measures the stiffness of the piece and uses a loose correlation between stiffness and strength to assign a stress grade. A sorted group with a small...

For many years consumers have enjoyed property protection against infestation because building regulations have required protection of the whole building or home through the use of simple physical barriers or low cost chemical barrier systems, such as soil treatment...

With the development of the Recycled Timber Grading Rules for Structural products, span tables have now been prepared for the four species groups (A to D) using the RG1 (recycled grade 1) recycled grade for wind classifications N1 to N3 and C1 to C2.

Details of the four species groups can...

Structural grading is the process by which timber is sorted into groups - or stress grades - with ideally, similar structural properties in each group. Inevitably there is a very substantial range of properties within a group and significant overlap in properties...

Without question, good risk management practices can and do reduce the risk of damage from termite attack on buildings. The Termite Risk Management handbook details how, providing a step by step guide for the building industry. This invaluable resource...
