Structural design of the new Exhibition Road Quarter at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London

Designing deep basements for buildings in historic city-centre locations is always a challenging proposition.

Design of precast concrete floors in steel-framed buildings. Part 3: Disproportionate collapse

Design of precast concrete floors in steel-framed buildings. Part 3: Disproportionate collapse

In the UK, steel-framed buildings with precast concrete floors are a common form of multistorey building. Such structures may be used for car parking, for commercial, retail or residential property developments, and for public buildings, such as schools and hospitals. This hybrid form of construction has many benefits, including the provision of an early, secure and broad platform from which subsequent site activities can be undertaken.

This article is the last in a series of three addressing aspects of designing steel-framed buildings with precast concrete floors. The article deals with the means of reducing the sensitivity of such a building to disproportionate collapse.
