Assessing the impacts of construction-induced ground movement on framed buildings (C796)
This guide has been written in connection with the prediction, assessment and control of damage to existing building stock resulting from construction-related ground movement. It is intended to provide a clear framework for assessing impacts to modern steel and reinforced concrete frame structures, together with a variety of cladding systems, and is appropriate for a variety of stakeholders.
The guide is for the benefit of all those involved in the evaluation, monitoring, control, or acceptance of building movement in response to nearby or underlying construction works. Although most of the text is intended for practicing engineers, the recommendations contained herein should be of interest to a wider audience (including local planning authorities, party wall surveyors, contractors, and building owners).
