Structural engineers consider the safety of structures from design and construction through to operation and demolition, in accordance with local legislation.
Structural engineers are key to ensuring that the built environment is robust and that lessons are learnt. This topic impacts upon the collaborative nature of construction and the need to ensure responsibilities are clearly defined at the outset of projects.
Effective retention and communication of project information, including maintenance and refurbishment, is paramount in ensuring the safety of society.

CROSS-UK Newsletter 65 includes articles on concerns about the robustness of several two-storey buildings dating from the early 2000s, fire protection to light gauge steel frame walls, rotting plywood decking on grandstand.
This two-day, online course extends the principles developed in the Understanding Structural Behaviour course. It covers more complex real structures and failures; and the important skills of approximate analysis for checking computer output and member sizing.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective whilst addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
This popular one-day, online course offers guidance on the design, stability, safety and performance of tall buildings.
This one-day, online course offers an introduction to timber design to Eurocode 5.
This course equips practising engineers to undertake the full structural design of a building, including designing a robust building to avoid disproportionate collapse. The course covers designing buildings of Class 1 – 2B and alterations/change of use of existing buildings.
This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focusses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers key advice using worked examples on the seismic design of structures to Eurocode 8, as well as the application of the Eurocode. Emphasis is placed on reinforced concrete buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
A technical presentation on the duties the designers have to support the principal designer.
A technical lecture on the collapse of an early railway bridge, lessons that were learnt then, and lessons that can still be applied today.
Vasilis Koutsomarkos will talk about latest developments and inclusion of fire safety concerns.
This talk will provide an update on the latest CROSS reports and how CROSS is influencing behaviour and performance.
