Guidance on incorporating structural robustness into designs for low-rise building structures. Also available to purchase as part of a two-volume package.

This guidance responds to a need for information on structural robustness to address the lack of confidence among designers in the application of building regulation requirements. It considers:

  • Fundamental attributes of robustness

  • Legal obligations

  • Interpretation BS EN 1990 (Eurocode 0) and Approved Document A 

  • Designing for robustness

  • Specific issues relating to the four main structual materials

While this guidance focuses on lower-risk building structures, it accompanies Manual for the systematic risk assessment of high-risk structures against disproportionate collapse (both titles can be purchased as a package).
