Designing a Safer Built Environment addresses long-standing uncertainties and challenges faced by designers, highlighted by recent events such as the Grenfell Tower fire, by providing a clear methodology for design risk management. Applicable across projects of all sizes, the book shows how designers can effectively manage risks to safety and health over a structure’s life-cycle whilst also raising standards. Importantly, it is also written for those professionals who manage, oversee, or have a wider interest in the consequences of design work.
The book also includes an extensive list of references to further sources of information.
Designing a Safer Built Environment questions, challenges, informs and explains. It is an essential companion for construction industry designers, and also those with associated responsibilities including Design Managers, Principal Designers, Clients and Contractors.
