This lecture discusses how structural engineers can apply the principles of inclusive design to their projects throughout the stages of the Plan of Work.

The IStructE’s latest publication, Inclusive design for structural engineers, supports structural engineers in applying the principles of inclusive design to their projects throughout the stages of the Plan of Work.

Structural engineers may think that inclusive design is only an issue for architects. However, structural engineers have a role to play in ensuring their designs are good for everyone regardless of age, ability or disability, size, or gender. If designers and structural engineers work together across all the stages of the Plan of Works it takes less time, money and materials overall.

The lecture gives an insight into the publication and the topic, including:

  • Delivering a ROI business case for inclusive design

  • Case studies on what structural engineers can do to support inclusive design

  • How to ensure procurement fully supports the inclusive design of the structure/building

  • How to ensure your designs are more accessible for all people by considering hidden disabilities

Reasons to watch

  • Learn what structural engineers can do to support inclusive design

  • Understand how getting the structural grids and circulation routes right can positively impact the inclusivity of a structure
