This new guide is for engineers and surveyors already familiar with inspecting, appraising and reporting upon buildings and associated structures. It is an update of the popular Guide to surveys and inspections of buildings and similar structures (1991) and provides guidance on the overall methods to the approach and reporting of inspections, including the safety and legal considerations surrounding them. Moreover, extensive checklists are provided to give on-site support whilst carrying out an inspection.

The guide is succinct and a handy pocket-size for use before and on-site during an inspection/survey; it is ring-bound for ease of use and printed on durable, water-resistant paper.

The guide is available to purchase at: http://shop.istructe.org/surveys-and-inspections-of-buildings.html

Timber bridges can have many advantages. A high strength to weight ratio enables relatively lightweight structures to be built, minimising the loads on any new or existing foundations and maximising the potential for off-site fabrication of large components or even entire bridges. Timber is also our only renewable construction material and can also offer a structure in complete sympathy with the natural surroundings.

The study on the use of prefabricated earth construction products in the field of structural engineering consisted of visiting a number of buildings, and attending a conference and a course on the subject. These activities took place in Germany, India and Scotland, and were aimed at assessing the feasibility of constructing with earth construction materials, more particularly prefabricated low processed earth products, in Northern Europe.
