Before you start
The pre-construct handover checklist outlines the requirements that must be met before the pre-construct design can be submitted to us.
Read through the pre-construct handover checklist below or download a copy.
- All designs are in AutoCAD *.DWG format (minimum version 2013.)
- The design represented in AutoCAD Model and Paper Space including PDF file.
- Current Development Stage Boundary reflected in L331 NBN Boundaries - GDAs layer.
- Stages other than Current are reflected in non-nbn template layers in colour other than Orange. ADT QA (Quality Audit) command may move some pits back to L462 NBN Support - Pits layer. There is no need in correcting that.
- The property survey data is on L141 Cadastre layer and contains only the line work helpful with pit placement when using ADT PIT command and also providing just sufficient visual reference for easy drawing review by nbn Planning (i.e. lot boundaries, roads, roundabouts, footpaths and driveways, road reserve & parking bays). All other imagery is moved out of L141 Cadastre layer.
- The current NBN Title Block is used.
- Development Name / Stage and NBN Reference Number / & Updated Design Revision are displayed in the Title Block on the plan.
- For the current Stage all Pre-Construct ducts are on L460 NBN Support – Underground layer with both line type and line colour set to By Layer.
- For the current Stage all Pre-Construct pits are on L462 NBN Support – Pits layer with colour set to By Layer.
- Shared Trench Symbol (Z-shaped) has been used where required and is on the nbn Share Trench Layer.
- The Bill of Materials (BOM) LOT Count for the stage matches the value of P20 in the BOM including the Developer Agreement. Each Lot (NBN_ADDRESS_SDU block) attributes specify unique street address (i.e. the same combination of street number and street name values is not allowed in different lot blocks).
- Future lots are reflected in a separate (Future Lots) layer in grey (AutoCAD 8) colour.
- The correct scaling is used (1:1 in metres).
- nbn approved AutoCAD symbols are used.
- nbn approved AutoCAD standards have been applied.
- nbn approved legend is present in the Paper Space and PDF.
- All named roads are shown (unavailable road names are entered as GENERICROAD1 ROAD, GENERICROAD2 ROAD, etc.).
- All Lot and or Unit numbers are shown on the NBN Address Layer (L140).
- All conduit measurements are represented on the plan in the model space; paper space & PDF.
- All service drop conduits are shown entering each nominated premises (lot).
- All pit types are shown (i.e. 2, 5, 6, 8, 9, Manhole).
- Pits do not straddle a Lot boundary, Lot side boundary or snap to it.
- Pits are not located in existing or proposed driveways.
- Laneway rear loading identification conforms to the current guidelines NBN-TE-CTO-194 (laneway is the least preferred solution to service lots).
- All conduit types are shown e.g. P100, P50, and P20. Conduits are not snapped to pit corner or entering pit via pit side.
- All fields in the New Development Information block (NBN_NDI) are populated. NBN_NDI block is in 0-GENERAL-NOTES layer, reflected in Model View, Paper Space and attached PDF.
- BOM (Bill Of Materials) provided in AutoCAD Model and Paper space including attached PDF.
- Where directed by nbn planning, a P100 express duct.
- If the development has the potential for future extension, provide network to the stage/works boundary & cap. All capped P100 conduits at a stage boundary must be represented utilising the “DCT” command.
- If new pits are placed over the existing nbn conduits, the design consultant or developer must contact nbn relocation works team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Pits over existing network must be constructed by nbn, not the developer or their constructor.
- EPR Zone symbol has been used when required and is on the nbn EPR Layer.
- ADT QA (Quality Audit) command successfully performed on the drawing.
- The Pre-Construct design signed and dated by the developer or their nominated representative.
- The design has the correct geographical location (Georeferenced to an MGA94 zone with the correct Easting’s and Northings coordinate values).
- Provide the designers Enabled Accreditation number in the Title Block (where the nbn enabled online accreditation has been completed).
- For HMDU (Horizontal Multi Dwelling Unit) developments under 25 premises only P50mm conduit network is required.
- The correct pit size is designed to accommodate the proposed conduit size & combinations as per NBN-TE-CTO-194 standard.
- A note is represented on the plan advising “All construction to be installed in Shared Trench unless otherwise shown”.
- The Global Coordinate system has been assigned using the following Map Grid of Australia zone:
