This article looks at some aspects of floor loading and how its application has changed for the better. It encourages a careful consideration of loadings to avoid unnecessary and irreversible loss of fabric through the application of significant strengthening schemes, cutting away existing historic framing.

Concrete Design Guide. No. 6: Fire design of concrete columns and walls to Eurocode 2

The design of concrete slabs and beams is not generally affected by fire design requirements. However, these can be a governing factor in the sizing of columns, particularly in multi-storey buildings. This article therefore concentrates on the guidance given in Eurocode 2 on the sizing of concrete columns for different fire resistance periods.

Conservation compendium. Part 12: Scaffolding of historic structures

In this article, issues associated with the scaffolding of historic structures are briefly explored and illustrated through four case studies. These are projects that crossed the author's desk, as a consulting engineer specialising in the conservation of historic structures, within a few months of each other. They explore some of the constraints imposed by 'historic fabric' and other factors, the compromises made, and the solutions reached.
