A Word from Phil Lucas – Senior Hydraulic Designer & Hydraulic Team Leader

Roof and gutter design advice has always formed part of STP’s Hydraulic Consultancy services to assist Architects in providing compliance with AS/NZS3500.3.

Our Hydraulic Team are often asked to provide advice where poorly designed roof water systems have resulted in inundation into the building. Building Certifiers are now requiring the provision of Form 15 Certification with design and documentation associated with the replacement of roofs, gutters, downpipes and overflows as part of insurance replacements resulting from storm damage or fire.

STP Consultants are currently undertaking a large number of roofing investigations, providing documents to assist Contractors in obtaining final approvals for the replacement works.

Projects range from the assessment of Entertainment Centres and Retail works to Residential roofs.
