The standards and publications shown here give recommendations on a wide range of building and construction matters. They are essential reference for architects, developers, building owners, building managers, building contractors, engineering consultants and other interested parties.
In addition, several Eurocodes apply to the design of structures. The Eurocodes microsite provides information and advice on their implementation and the latest publication schedules.
