Role of the structural engineer in demolition

This paper is intended to help other structural engineers as well as construction and health and safety (H&S) professionals appreciate some of the common structural issues encountered during demolition. The content is equally relevant to refurbishment projects where demolition is a necessary process but one not always fully appreciated by a construction industry that focuses on new-build. The text provides an insight into the role of the structural engineer working for a demolition contractor.
