By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Identify a range of different materials that may be found in existing buildings
Demonstrate knowledge of some of the typical defects that might be found in different materials/ages of construction
Ask the right questions and take practical steps to assess an existing structures condition and loading capacities
Address robustness and disproportionate collapse in your designs
Think holistically about reuse as part of a wider sustainability discussion
Graduate to experienced structural engineers looking to build confidence when working on reuse or refurbishment projects.
Rachael De’Ath has more than 20 years of design experience, working for Arup and
more recently Marbas as well as 3 years lecturing at the University of
Bristol teaching design and has
continued her role as a visiting
lecture. She has a broad range of
experience but prefers to work on
existing buildings where she uses
her skills and experience to reimagine
the existing structure into
something new. She was named as
one of the Women’s Engineering
Society’s ‘Top 50 female engineers’
in 2018 and is an active member of
her local IStructE branch committee.
Gavin Knowles is a
lecturer at the University
of Bath and prior to this
has worked in practice
as a Chartered structural engineer.
His previous projects including many
education and office buildings, along
with conservation and refurbishment
projects, interweaved with diverse
structures, such as rammed
chalk-walled houses, recycled
material stages at WOMAD Festival
and the odd sculpture. He now
teaches Structural Design,
Conservation and leads on student

This course equips practicing engineers to undertake the full structural design of a building, including designing a robust building to avoid disproportionate collapse. The course covers designing buildings of Class 1 – 2B and alterations/change of use of existing buildings.
This one-day online course introduces timber as an engineering material, with a focus on its use in historic structures. It covers non-destructive techniques for condition assessment, and strategies for the reuse of heritage structures.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers practical advice through the use of worked examples on dynamic analysis, conceptual design for earthquake resistance and seismic design of structural elements to Eurocode 8. Emphasis is placed on concrete and steel buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
This course takes place as a series of two-hour interactive sessions over three weeks. It introduces EN 1991-1-4 for determining wind actions on structures, outlines the basic principles behind the code and covers each step of the procedure for calculating the wind loads on structures. Attention is given to important features introduced by the UK NA.
This interactive online course will share current state-of-the-art frameworks for the adoption of resilience-based design in professional practice, demonstrating advantages compared to a traditional prescriptive design and providing examples of how they benefit the client.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective, while addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective while addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
This one-day, online advanced practical workshop will teach complex timber engineering through worked examples. It encourages problem-solving through teaching tools and group discussion.
This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
