Those plans which are received with no calculations will not be approved until calculations have been provided.
If you are constructing a building using standard building specifications (e.g. Olympic Garages, Stratco carports and verandahs), a copy of the specification related to the job should be attached to the applications. These ‘standard’ designs use specific connection and footing details which need to be adhered to during construction.
For ‘non-standard’ designs (i.e. using your own design), a Certificate of Structural Adequacy from a structural engineer will need to be provided with your application.
