General Design Criteria


Column Designs

Where Nutec Building Columns are designed as load bearing structures in buildings, they should be considered as a permanent shuttering only and the reinforced concrete core on its own should have the capacity to withstand all movement and axial loads. The lightest class of pipe can therefore be used, as it only has to withstand the installation loads.

The design of the concrete core requires professional expertise and should be executed by a professional engineer.
