Guidance. DoE Interim Guidance on Temporary Grandstands

Because of concern expressed by the Standing Committee on Structural Safety on the control of temporary structures needed for pop concerts and similar events and also in the aftermath of the earlier failure at Bastia, the Institution assisted the Department of the Environment by assembling a Task Group to prepare draft interim guidance on temporary grandstands. The Task Group was chaired by Dr Sam Thorburn, OBE, FEng (F) and besides members from the original drafting panels for the Institution publications on demountable grandstands and appraisal of sports grounds had nominations from the Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institute of Building Control. The interim guidance has now been reviewed by the Building Regulations Advisory Committee and received Ministerial approval for issue as a DOE document.
