Online Eurocodes launched by BSI

British standards organisation BSI will launch a web-based version of Eurocodes on 28 November in a bid to ease use of the system.

BSI head of market development for the construction sector Jonathan Griffin estimated that implementing Eurocodes costs around £16,000 per engineer but believes the new Eurocodes Plus system will significantly reduce that. “Introduction of Eurocodes has been the biggest single change for the construction industry in terms of standards,” he said.

“There have been considerable challenges involved in familiarisation, which have implications on productivity.”

Eurocodes Plus aims to remove these issues with a searchable system that also allows users to place “Post-it notes” on sections to enable others within the same company to benefit from experience gained on specific projects and applications.

The BSI worked with several engineering firms to develop the system and it has been trialled by a variety of different users over the last few months.
