HVAC Building Approval Form 15

The submission of a Form 15 for certification of HVAC systems under the Building Act, s 24, 25 and 26, can be mandatory to gain building certification. This has been echoed with the introduction of the Schools standard air conditioning specification for the Queensland Governments department of education school cooling program.

It is necessary to have the HVAC analysis and design signed off in the form of a Form 15 by a RPEQ (Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland), prior to installation.

From the School standard air conditioning specification;
RPEQ Design Certification – Certify the complete air conditioning and supply air system installation for compliance with the Building Act, and for compliance with the design requirements of Section 3 – Mechanical Services of this Specification for each school. Provide the certification on a standard “Form 15” (Mechanical Design Certificate) by an engineer registered as a professional engineer in Queensland (RPEQ).

Structural Supports RPEQ Design Certification – Provide certification of all condensing units, evaporative cooling units and fan coil support frames and brackets by an engineer registered as a professional engineer in Queensland (RPEQ). Provide the certification on a standard “Form 15” (Structural Design Certificate).

Final design drawings and Certification (Form 15s for Mechanical Services, Electrical Services and Structural services). Submit to Principal for review.
