Design of precast concrete must comply with the relevant New Zealand Standards. This is normally undertaken by suitably qualified and experienced engineers, although ConcreteNZ Precast members may offer design input for some specialist products such as prestressed floor systems.
All design, manufacture, transportation, handling and erection at all stages must comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act. Worksafe have published their guide to handling, transportation and erection of precast concrete. LINK to https://worksafe.govt.nz/topic-and-industry/concrete/safe-work-with-precast-concrete/
Background information on various design issues is accessible on this website, but responsibility for the use of that information and for the final design must rest with the user through their professional advisors.
