(ii) Column Design
(iii) Floor Slab Design
(iv) Design of Pad footing
(v) Detail all reinforcement and prestressing in the slab and beam.
Use f’c = 40 MPa - unless your group decides there is a valid reason for doing otherwise.

Consider only the durability requirement when determining cover (i.e., not the fire requirement).
All design is to be in accordance with AS3600 – 2018 Concrete Structures.
