The Structural Plan of Work 2020

Guidance

New framework on structural engineering roles and deliverables. Helping to clearly define the roles of structural engineers on building projects, while delivering efficiencies and clarity for clients.

The new IStructE Plan of Work, co-ordinated with the RIBA Plan of Work 2020, delivers the framework that provides clarity over structural engineering roles and deliverables, improving collaboration with other design and construction disciplines. Adopting a properly managed process for developing projects secures successful project outcomes.​​
