Construction Specifications

The Armidale Regional Council Engineering Construction Specifications have been developed to provide a quality assurance framework that developers and council must meet when undertaking works within the Local Government Area.

The Engineering Construction Specifications are a regional approach to provide uniform construction standards through a clear and comprehensive set of specifications for infrastructure construction.

Both the community and the development industry now have clear guidelines for infrastructure requirements throughout the Armidale Region.

The Codes have been developed from the original issue of the AusSpec Construction Specification series and have been amended in accordance with current construction industry Best Practice and in accordance with current Australian Standards and have been modified to suit the specific needs of the Armidale Region.

A suite of Standard Drawings has been developed with the engineering design Codes and should be used in conjunction with the construction specifications. 

These and the codes are available as pdf documents free of charge on Council’s web site. 

Dwg copies of the standard drawings are available on request.

The use and implementation of these specifications is a requirement of all public infrastructure construction works for which Armidale Regional Council will become the owner and maintainer of the asset.
