This course equips practising 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. 

Learning outcomes

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
  • Analyse an existing building that is being altered or extended and develop an outline scheme for robustness using guidance from London District Surveyors Association


Intended for

Newly Chartered or almost Chartered Engineers who are independently doing the outline, scheme and detailed design of buildings.

 

Entry criteria

Two to six years in a consulting engineering company, unless you are almost or recently chartered.
