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.​​
 

What's included

  • Structural plan of work (PDF)
  • Guidance to structural plan of work (PDF) - explains how the structural plan of works is to be used in detail 
  • Design responsibility matrix (Excel spreadsheet) - provides the industry with a baseline of what responsibilities structural engineers take on during a project which facilitates collaboration and avoid gaps
  • Structural Sustainability Report (Word document) - provides engineers with a template report to which they can add project-specific information based on work that they’ve undertaken to increase the sustainability of the work. A supporting Sustainability Checklist is available at www.istructe.org/sustainability-checklist to enable good decisions to be made during the design process, leading to the issuing of this report
Access the Documents using the "Access resource" button at the top of the page.
