Ground-related Risks for Buildings (BR 447)
- This format is currently out of stock.
This report is concerned with ground-related hazards for building developments on brownfield sites. Principal hazards are ground movement, vulnerability of construction materials to aggressive ground conditions, gas migration, and subterranean fires and the report outlines a systematic way to manage the range of risks over the lifetime of the building development and case histories are discussed. It emphasises that an unwarranted over-sensitivity to risk will defeat the objective of locating building developments on brownfield sites.
