Structures and construction


The Structures and Construction division is for structural engineers and civil engineers with an interest in professional design practices and contracting roles in both the public and private sectors as well as academia.

The Conservation Register for Engineers (CARE) is for engineers skilled in the conservation of historical structures and sites. It is a joint Register between the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE) and is administered by ICE. Under a bilateral registration agreement civil and structural engineers who are Chartered Engineer members can join the CARE Register.

Hurricane-resistant construction may be undervalued by billions of euro every year

Failing to consider neighbourhood texture in hurricane-related wind loss models may undervalue stronger construction by more than 80%.

The power of automation – using scripting to optimise designs

As technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, the need for process automation within our industry is increasing. Automation through scripting is a valuable process that enables us to efficiently manage and manipulate important data to deliver more efficient and sustainable outcomes, writes Arup structural engineer Daniel Keating.

Wall of Wind can blow away buildings at Category 5 hurricane strength to help engineers design safer homes – but even that isn’t powerful enough

In an airplane hangar in Miami, engineers are recreating some of the most powerful hurricane winds to ever strike land. These Category 5 winds can shatter a test building in the blink of an eye. But, designing homes and infrastructure to withstand future storms – 'Category 6' events – will require new test facilities that go well beyond today’s capabilities.

Towards customisable timber, grown in a lab

Researchers show they can control the properties of lab-grown plant material, which could enable the production of wood products with little waste.

Exploration of authentic teaching, learning, and assessment practice in CPD in built environment – Part 2 research and innovation panel

The aim of the seminar was to explore authentic and appropriate teaching, learning, and assessment practice in CPD through a multidisciplinary and international lens, to identify opportunities for learning enhancement in the built environment.
