Workmanship on construction sites. Introduction and general principles

Status : Confirmed, Current   Published : January 2014



What is this standard about?

BS 8000-0:2014 establishes the general principles behind the BS 8000 series of standards that covers workmanship on construction sites.

Who is this standard for? 

  • The construction industry
  • Quality managers
  • Health and safety industry

Why should you use this standard? 

BS 8000 is a series of standards describing the execution of works for a range of construction activities. They are issued to fill a gap in the authoritative information that is available to those specifying and assisting in the description of processes to ensure better construction quality. The various parts of BS 8000 draw content from, and relate to, other relevant British Standards and codes.

This part of BS 8000 provides a context for the activities described in the individual parts, encouraging liaison and awareness of the adjoining/dependent trades and processes in the construction sequence (whether or not they are subject to one of the specialist titles in the series).

It includes general principles of issues such as tolerance, accuracy, fit, preparation of materials and interdependencies between trades, and draws attention to certain health and safety issues.

What’s changed since the last update?

  • BS 8000-0 has been revised by technical experts in line with industry and technological developments.
  • Recent updates align it with best practice in construction
  • This part of BS 8000 partially supersedes some general aspects currently covered in individual parts of the series
