The course covers designing buildings of Class 1–2B and alterations/change of use of existing buildings.
By the end of the course, you should be able to:
Describe the layout and structure of a robust building and explain what makes a building vulnerable
Summarise which legislation is relevant to disproportionate collapse and identify key clauses
Classify buildings into their types, with respect to building use and size
Outline different approaches for achieving robustness
Determine a strategy for robustness compliance for buildings of different material types, use and size
Have an appreciation of fire protection of different building materials and how fire safety plays a role in all building design

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 design projects.

This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This course covers the design of common structural elements to Eurocode 2. Participants will be introduced to concrete material properties and learn about designing for durability and fire.
This two-day, in-person course provides participants with an understanding of the basic principles of temporary works design.
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 two-day course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
