The new standard covers concrete paving, blocks and flags, natural stone slabs and sets, and clay pavers, providing authoritative information on the structural design of modular pavements
BSI have announced the publication of a new standard, and we think you’re going to like it!
A radical evolution on prior documents, the revised Code of Practice brings five previous parts together into one document. It replaces BS 7533 parts 1, 2, 8, 10 and 12, and partially supersedes parts 6 and 7.
For, users that means:
- a big saving on the purchase cost of these standards. (Remember, LI members can currently buy this standard at a 30% discount.)
- a simplified all-round design process.
- less confusion over guidance, and therefore less risk of costly design or installation errors.
- reliable, up-to-date information that will give users the confidence to not over-specify.
Join the introductory webinar on Wednesday 20 October
BSI are running a one-hour webinar at 10.00am on Wednesday 20 October to introduce the new standard. There will also be short presentations on current trends in paving design and construction.
The webinar will cover:
- an introduction to BS 7533-101 and the paving industry.
- end-user perspectives on designing a pavement.
- highways engineering perspectives on designing a pavement.
- how to use concrete, stone and clay as modular paving materials.
This event is for end users, highways engineers and material specialists in the concrete, stone and other specialist industries involved in designing pavements.
