Assessing large panel system blocks

The results of a new research project could lead to multi-million pound savings in the long-term management of large panel system buildings. A consortium of companies are addressing discrepancies in the guidance now used when assessing large panel system buildings. The two-year project will focus on the urgent need to:

  • Revise existing guidance on the structural assessment of large panel system (LPS) multi-storey blocks
  • Develop more advanced methods of assessing the robustness of LPS blocks under accidental loading

The results of the project could lead to multi-million pound savings in the long-term asset management of LPS dwelling blocks, because unnecessary or inappropriate remedial and strengthening works will be avoided.
