Brand new forthcoming guidance from the Institution of Structural Engineers reflecting the necessity of a completely new approach to internal layouts and other requirements for structural design of car parks. Pre-order now.

The Institution’s Design recommendations for multi-storey and underground car parks has set the standard for car park design since 1976. After more than 45 years and four editions, this brand new guidance builds on that legacy to provide completely revised and updated information for anyone involved in car park design, construction, maintenance and reuse.

It reflects the significant changes to vehicular size, weight and manoeuvrability in recent years, to offer modern guidance on parking bay sizes and deck loadings. Hybrid and electric vehicle use, together with the need for inclusive design and a far greater emphasis on sustainable solutions, have necessitated a completely new approach to internal layouts and other requirements for structural design — including the minimisation of fire spread.

The guidance is based on UK design methodologies and practice (and where possible/appropriate, has considered any likely updates to the Eurocodes and Building Regulations) but the principles have global applicability.
