3.1Concrete and its reinforcement

This chapter gives guidance on meeting the Technical Requirements for concrete and its reinforcement.


Concrete design and specification should comply with the relevant British Standards. Mix design should take account of strength and durability, and follow recognised standards and practices. Alternatively, mixes in accordance with the guidance in this chapter will be acceptable. This applies to plain and reinforced concrete, whether precast or in-situ.
