This publication presents the range of steel-intensive construction technologies that may be used successfully in the multi-storey residential building sector. The publication discusses the important regulatory requirements and other aspects influencing the design of residential buildings. It mentions aspects of compliance with the Building Regulations, including the recently enhanced requirements for acoustic and thermal insulation. It also gives information on the means of achieving robustness in multi-storey structures, to prevent disproportionate collapse.

The steel technologies covered in the publication are:
• Composite construction
• Slimdek
• Slimflor (using precast concrete slabs)
• Light steel framing
• Modular construction
• Light steel separating walls.

The main features and benefits of these technologies are described, together with recent examples of housing or residential buildings using these forms of construction. The attributes and application of a range of cladding options is provided, with illustrations of their use. Details of balconies and parapet walls are also included. Basements are an increasingly common requirement for densely populated environments, and information on the construction of water-tight basements is given.
