New Concrete BS
The BS 8500 series has recently been amended to address a number of required clarifications for the additional United Kingdom complementary provisions to be used in conjunction with BS EN 206. The BS 8500 series is divided into two parts:
- BS 8500-1:2015+A1:2016 is the guide for the concrete buyer and describes methods of specifying concrete
- BS 8500-2:2015+A1:2016 is the guide for the concrete producer and contains specifications for constituent materials and concrete
These two key standards exist to provide UK national provisions where required or permitted by BS EN 206. They cover materials, methods of testing and procedures outside the scope of BS EN 206 but within national experience.
These amended standards will be important to anyone in a construction project who provides or requires information on ready mix concrete, including:
- Construction contractors, specialists and manufacturers
- Structural engineers
