The Institution of Structural Engineers publishes 4th edition of Temporary demountable structures 

Published: 10/05/2017

The new, fully revised edition is now available from the bookshop.

The Institution of Structural Engineers has published a new, fully revised edition of Temporary demountable structures: Guidance on procurement design and use, providing current and essential information for Event Organisers, Venue Owners, Local Authorities, Contractors and Suppliers responsible for the safe construction of temporary structures – including stages, grandstands, hospitality units, fencing, barriers and fabric structures of all sizes. 

The 3rd edition (2007) was identified as a core reference requirement by LOCOG for London’s 2012 Olympic Games; and this new edition draws on the experiences and lessons learned from the project - where temporary structures were used on an unprecedented scale. 

Supported by the UK’s Health and Safety Executive, the latest edition embraces the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 and contains extensive reference to current Codes/Standards including the Eurocodes. The principles described are likely to be appropriate for projects undertaken throughout the world.

The publication is priced £39 for Institution members and £69 for non-members and is now available to buy from The Institution's  Bookshop.
