This letter draws attention to the publication ‘Temporary demountable structures: guidance on procurement, design and use (third edition)’. This has been prepared by an expert group with representatives from this department, industry and the Institutions of Structural and Civil Engineers.
The publication provides guidance on the procurement, design, erection and use of temporary demountable structures such as grandstands, marquees, stage structures and barriers. Towers and masts to support media facilities are also included. It is intended for event organisers, venue owners, local authorities, contractors and suppliers of demountable structures and for competent persons who are responsible for their design.
Copies of this guide are available on the Institution of Structural Engineers website.
