Standards, Structures – What’s Next?

A one-day conference


Date: 15th October 2020

The Eurocodes are a set of harmonised European structural design codes for building and civil engineering works specifying how structural design should be conducted by bringing together the differing design traditions that have existed across Europe.

The Eurocodes are separated into a number of design areas, including structural safety, serviceability, and action effects on structures, geotechnical design, material design and detailing.

This one day conference will have a full line up of expert speakers on these topics covering all practical elements, using case studies and real-life examples to help you fully understand all important areas as well as changes to expect over the next few years.
