Concrete, aggregates and masonry
Concrete is a composite building material made from the combination of aggregate and cement binder. It is the most commonly used construction material; it’s used to make pavements, building structures, foundations, motorways and roads, overpasses, parking structures, brick/block walls and footings for gates, fences and poles.
BSI standards and publications specify requirements for the constituent materials used in concrete, aggregates and masonry. They also provide guidance for construction industry professionals to ensure appropriate selection of materials and good standards of workmanship in masonry structures.
