Your Details

This two day course delivers a comprehensive and detailed workshop on the use and application of Eurocode 2 for the design of concrete building structures. Making extensive use of tutorials to reinforce the learning points, it considers all the key aspects of reinforced concrete design including flexure, shear, deflection, columns, detailing, and spread foundations.

Eurocode 2 is the standard for the design of concrete structures. It is a robust and rigorous design code and but takes a less prescriptive approach than its predecessor. As such, it offers flexibility and opportunity in design but requires clear understanding and careful application.

For each aspect, Eurocode design concepts are explained and discussed in detail including departure from existing practice (BS 8110). The learning is reinforced through extensive worked examples and tutorials.  Key emphasis is placed on practical design, developing capability and familiarity with Eurocode 2; this workshop style learning will benefit those seeking extended practical guidance on the application of Eurocode 2 and clear advice and opinion from a key Eurocode expert.

This training course has been mapped to:
  • UK-SPEC Competence A1: Maintain and extend a sound theoretical approach in enabling the introduction and exploitation of new and advancing technology
  • ICE Key Attribute 1C: Ability to maintain and extend a sound theoretical approach in enabling the introduction and exploitation of new and advancing technology


Training courses on set dates, in ICE Training venues across the country. Suitable for those looking to attend a training course and share knowledge and practical experiences with like-minded others in an interactive learning environment.


Bespoke training programmes. These are delivered by our tutors at a time, in a location and based on a curriculum completely tailored to your needs. Ideal for organisations that have several employees wishing to take training in the same subject area, and/or have organisation-specific ideas for learning and development.

Bob Benton 
BSc(Eng) CEng MiStructE
Bob is a senior project engineer working on the design of building and civil engineering structures in a public sector Highways and Transportation Department. He is responsible for the day to day management of a wide range of projects, and in recent years, has specialised in projects which involve a high level of technical complexity. He regularly works with other consultants and contractors. He also works as a part-time lecturer, teaching whole units on HND/Degree courses, teaching on professional examination, preparation courses and as a contributor to seminars on structural design.
Learning Objectives
By the end of this course delegates should:
  • Be able to undertake the design of basic reinforced concrete structures to Eurocode 2
  • Be able to recognise the principle differences between Eurocode 2 and BS8110
  • Have an appreciation of the Eurocode suite and their impact on UK design practice
  • Have a clear understanding of practicalities of design using Eurocode 2
Who Should Attend?

If you are looking to develop your design capability in a Eurocode environment then this 2 day practical workshop will meet your requirements. It offers extended practical guidance, advice and opinion on the application of the Eurocodes for the practising designer.

If you have previously attended the Design of Concrete Structures to Eurocode 2: The Essentials course, this workshop will offer a recap on your learning, as well as the additional material included under the Programme Overview tab.
