National Structural Steelwork Specification for Building Construction 7th Edition (Book)



The 7th edition of the National Structural Steelwork Specification (NSSS) continues to meet its objective of achieving greater uniformity in steelwork contract specifications and is recognised as a document that can be incorporated readily into contract documentation to specify acceptable standards for the fabrication and erection of steelwork structures for buildings.

It can be used for all types of building construction designed for static loading and is based on Execution Class 2 structural steelwork designed in accordance with BS EN 1993-1-1 or BS 5950 and executed in accordance with BS EN 1090-1 and BS EN 10902. Annexes for Execution Class 3 for static and fatigue structures are also included.

To allow steelwork contractors time to put in place the necessary third party systems to comply with the Specification the 7th Edition of the NSSS will not come in to force until 1st January 2021.
