The wind classification gives builders, suppliers, designers, and clients the insights they need to design and quote correctly. It gives them the correct design and construction specifications, such as frame bracing and tie downs, window/cladding and fixings, and minimum structural member sizes and appropriate connections. This means clients or owners are more aware of costs up front.
Wind classification is often done in conjunction with a site classification soil test.
Wind classification involves the following steps:
For economy of scale, you can arrange your wind classification at the same time as your soil test.
An early engineer’s assessment means we can apply the correct standard (AS4055 or AS1170.2), which avoids hold ups later down the track.
We have an extensive site database (as well as the latest software in-house) to ensure you receive a quality report.
STA is a one-stop engineer with a service range that delivers three key advantages:
Pre-planning your engineering needs means you won’t have to keep re-booking an engineer when you need a particular service. It creates efficiencies that cut service times and save you money by pulling together the services you’ll need, at a lower overall price.
With all your engineering done by a single organisation, your consultants tap into a deeper knowledge of the site and the project, which leads to high quality outcomes, with more opportunities for innovative solutions.
While STA always takes legal responsibility for its engineering designs, an up-front engineering services package makes it easier to trust our work with a strong mutual commitment, and reduced risk of potential interruption or delay.
