Product Description

Post publication note: Since publication of this third edition, British Standards have been replaced by Eurocodes. While this Manual has continued relevance as a reference source for engineers involved in the refurbishment of buildings designed to British Standards, it is neither updated by the Institution, nor recommended as a guide for new design.


This manual provides guidance on the design of single and multi-storey building structures using structural steelwork. Structures designed in accordance with this manual will normally comply with BS 5950-1:2000 as amended in 2008.

The range of structures covered by the Manual are:

  • braced multi-storey structures that do not rely on bending resistance of columns for their overall stability, and are classified as non-sway

  • single-storey structures using portal frames or posts and lattice trusses

    The Manual provides:

  • guidance on structural form, framing and bracing including advice on the selection of floors, roofing and cladding systems, and advice on fire and corrosion protection

  • step-by-step procedures for designing the different types of structure and structural elements including verification of robustness and design of connections
