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.

Collaborative Reporting for Safer Structures (CROSS) publishes reports on fire and structural safety incidents and near-misses. Each report also contains expert analysis and insight to prevent future occurrences. CROSS-UK Newsletter 67 is now available.
This two-day course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective, while addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
This course is designed to provide structural engineers with a greater understanding of fire safety, key legislation, and the principles of risk analysis in order to ensure that adequate structural performance in fire is achieved. Participants will examine case studies of structural and non-structural failures as a result of fire.
This popular one-day, online course offers guidance on the design, stability, safety and performance of tall buildings.
This half-day in-person course provides guidance to early-career structural engineers to develop a better understanding of geotechnical engineering and use that knowledge to enhance and promote sustainable design.
This course equips practicing 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 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 computational output and member sizing.
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 focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This course provides an introduction to structural steelwork design to Eurocode 3 for building design.
This two-day, online course shows engineers how to arrive at a qualitative solution to both create a structure and check computational results.
This advanced one-day, online course delivers practical advice through the use of worked examples on dynamic analysis, conceptual design for earthquake resistance and seismic design of structural elements to Eurocode 8. Emphasis is placed on concrete and steel buildings although the concepts are widely applicable.
This course provides guidance on specific aspects of demolition and refurbishment from an engineering perspective while addressing safety, environmental and sustainability influences.
A breakfast briefing, sponsored by Getzner, focusing on elastic building isolation and its application for achieving dynamic optimisation and structural integrity.
