Description

BRANZ is developing guidance that will support designers to incorporate a range of hybrid solutions in light timber-framed buildings, supporting the growing popularity of low-rise and mid-rise housing.

As owners or occupiers of low-rise housing, New Zealanders expect their housing to keep the rain out, even after a moderate earthquake. When we travel to a medium-rise workplace, apartment or gym, we expect the offices, warehouses and other buildings to be weathertight. When we live or work in high-rise apartments or office spaces in our cities, we expect them to also keep us dry when it rains and safe in moderate earthquakes.

Scope

This article includes:

  • Weathertightness testing for mid-rise
  • BRANZ developed a solution
  • Basics of the EM7 test
  • Provides evidence for BCAs
  • Teething issues sorted
  • Critical for mid-rise claddings
