This new guidance provides helpful information for practicing structural engineers at all career stages

Drawing on 11 different cladding systems and a section on balconies, the following aspects are presented in an easily accessible style:

  • Loading (including less familiar scenarios)
  • Movement
  • Calculations
  • Tolerances
  • Fixings
  • Testing
  • Information transfer

A useful sample checklist is included to aid designers, and although outcomes from the recent Grenfell Tower disaster are not included, reference is made to matters concerning fire control.
