BSI - Introduction to BS 8579:2020 Guide to the design of balconies and terraces
Virtual Event | 06 October 2020 10:00AM
Balconies and terraces are becoming increasingly popular as a way to give building occupants outside space – yet there’s been a lack of consensus in the UK on their optimum design.
Participants will hear from expert speakers about key aspects of the standard. There will be presentations on: enclosure and arrangement of balconies, wind effects, inclusive design, structural and mechanical stability and integrity, fire performance, weathering and hydraulic design. The event will conclude with a Q&A session.
What will I learn?
During this event we will explore:
An increased understanding and awareness of BS 8579
New information and ideas about balcony and terrace design
An opportunity to ask questions and network with sector peers
