Written for those with a responsibility for grandstands, including owners, operators, managers, architects, insurers, engineering designers, and local authority staff dealing with building control and safety issues, this publication supersedes both Dynamic performance requirements for permanent grandstands subject to crowd action: Interim guidance on assessment and design (2001) and Dynamic testing of grandstands and seating decks (2002).
The recommendations apply to grandstands with seating decks constructed in structural steel, reinforced or prestressed concrete and are considered relevant to grandstands with seating decks having a supported span greater than 6m (or cantilever spans of more than 2.5m). The publication was prepared by a joint working group of the Institution, Department for Communities and Local Government, and the Department for Culture Media and Sport. The appendices will be of particular benefit to the engineering analyst and designer.
