Seismic design for non-structural building services

Do you need help to meet AS1170.4 code requirements?

Building services are considered "non-structural" items, however, the Nation Construction Code (NCC) requires that their design and installation complies with a number of structural standards. Contractors throughout Australia frequently encounter significant technical and financial challenges in complying with these codes. 

KUSCH not only understand the intent of the clauses within these codes, but also understand the challenges contractors face on-site, and strive to design support systems that require the minimum amount of labour and material to construct.

We are a team of Structural and Mechanical Engineers, who collaborate with project architects, builders, mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic consultants, as well as D&C Contractors, to provide cost-saving guidance on code restraint requirements and permitted exclusions. Our mission is to provide you with maximum seismic resilience for minimum overall cost.


The earlier you speak with us, the more cost savings we can engineer into your designs. Quick phone calls are FREE.

We would hate for you to make a major seismic decision without speaking with us first.

Talk to us early, talk to us often.
