Training Session – Building Over or Near Public Infrastructure

Join Cornell Engineer’s structural engineer, Jed Maybury, for an introduction to MP1.4 Building Over or Near Relevant Infrastructure in Queensland. 

MP1.4 is the rule book for engineers for designing buildings over sewer pipes in Queensland.

MP1.4 specifies rules for how close footings can be to sewer pipes, stormwater pipes, gas pipes, Telstra pipes, NBN cables and other underground pipes.

For example when building near a council sewer pipe,  the footings have to be clear of the manholes, clear of the sewer connection point (the location your house connects to the sewer) and clear of the sewer pipe itself.

Here are the Powerpoint slides for you to click along with.

Connect with Jed Maybury on LinkedIn.
