Description

Acceptable Solution B1/AS3 provides a means of compliance with Building Code Clause B1 Structure.

Clause B1 requires buildings to withstand likely loads, including wind, earthquake, live and dead loads (people and building contents).

Clause B1 sets requirements around the combination of loads that buildings, building elements and sitework are likely to experience during construction, alteration and throughout their lives.

The performance requirements outline how buildings should be stable, not degrade and withstand physical conditions to protect lives and other property. It makes due allowance for the intended use of a building, the consequence of failure and other limitations.

This acceptable solution applies to small chimneys and to supporting hearth slabs for solid fuel burning domestic appliances.
