At first sight the revised Section 1 has changed quite dramatically and in particular is much longer, providing more or revised guidance in all sections. However, the philosophy underpinning the requirements has not changed to any great extent.
This Construction Briefing summarises the major changes in the 2007 edition of the Scottish Building Standards, including new guidance on disproportionate collapse, and the updated timeframe for replacing British Standard methodology for structural design with the new Eurocode system.
This sheet also covers the merge of the Small Buildings Guide which is now included as part of Section 1 and is partly responsible for the dramatic increase in the length of the Standard.
