  2. 2. BSI Construction standards BSI brings a new and refreshed approach to the area of standardization. The emphasis of standards has been extended beyond technical issues to include process issues of key strategic importance to the construction sector. The policy remit has been widened to include standards relating to all aspects of the built environment. To compliment the change in policy focus, the construction standards committees at BSI are also being reorganized into seven core areas, namely: • Design • Structures • Construction products • Built environment engineering • Infrastructure • Site operations • Facilities management This new portfolio addresses requirements for the whole of the built environment. BSI has already mapped out an action plan for the future and has reorganized the technical committees to mirror the way the industry actually works. This will lead to a new generation of performance related standards which will improve innovation and competitiveness in the UK and overseas. The standards and the changes needed to reflect the new demands for smart, sustainable construction for the future. Contents Design Page 3 Infrastructure Page 11 Structures Page 5 Site operations Page 12 Construction products Page 6 Facilities management Page 13 Built environment engineering Page 9 Standards and publications may also be ordered via the BSI shop at http://shop.bsigroup.com *P&P £5.95 UK (inclusive of VAT); £9.95 Rest of 2 To order please call BSI Customer Services on the World (+VAT if applicable) – one-off charge added to your order of 10 items or fewer.

  5. 5. Structures This section covers standards for the design and execution of buildings and civil engineering works. Written for structural engineers, the standards and publications in this area cover design principles and set out mathematical formulae and calculation methods. Buildings (above four stories) and other structures such as bridges, chimneys, towers, masts, and pipelines are covered. So too are requirements for the design of foundations, embankments, and piles. Individual construction materials and the impacts of loadings are also covered. BS EN 1090-2:2008 Execution of steel structures and BS 5268-3:2006 Structural use of timber.

The main users of standards are manufacturers, inspectors and testers, but other parts of the construction process also use the standards. Many of the standards are harmonized product standards or supporting methods of test for the Construction Products Directive 1989.
