Code of practice for foundations

Status : Current   Published : June 2015



What is this standard about?

BS 8004:2015 provides recommendations for the design of both shallow and deep foundations. It covers the design, construction, monitoring, and maintenance of spread foundations, pile foundations, helical steel pile foundations and underpinning.

Who is this standard for?

  • Geotechnical engineers
  • Structural engineers
  • Civil engineers
  • Architects
  • Specialist piling designers
  • Specifiers
  • Consultants
  • Contractors
  • Clients

Why should you use this standard? 

This revised code of practice takes into account advances in foundation technology over the past 30 years, providing the up-to-date guidance needed to implement the requirements of Eurocode 7. It gives details on how foundations should be designed according to limit state principles. It also provides information missing from Eurocode 7 but of importance to UK practice.

What’s changed since the last update?

  • The revised BS 8004 is now based on the limit state principles set out in Eurocode 7, reflecting current developments in piling
  • It provides guidance in relation to soil stiffness, to enable serviceability limit states to be verified
  • It also gives detailed recommendations for the contents of close-out reports (Geotechnical Feedback Reports)
