Biography

Andrew Bond has been actively involved in drafting key elements of Eurocode 7. He was one of the UK's representatives on CEN TC250/SC7, the committee responsible for Eurocode 7 for many years and - in June 2010 - he took over as its Chairman. He is a member of BSI committee B/526 Geotechnics, which is responsible for the UK National Annex to Eurocode 7.

Andrew served on the committees that prepared the National Strategy for Implementation of the Structural Eurocodes (2004) and the forthcoming CIRIA report, Eurocode 7 – differences from practice. He co-authored the chapter on Eurocode 7 in the BSI Guide to Structural Eurocodes for students of structural design (2004) and co-wrote the Concrete Centre guidance How to design concrete structure to Eurocode 2 – Retaining Structures.

In 2008, Andrew published (with co-author Andrew Harris) the book 'Decoding Eurocode 7' which sets out to explain the inner workings of the code 'warts and all'.

Andrew has delivered numerous technical courses and lectures on the Structural Eurocodes in general and Eurocode 7 in particular. These include: the Institution of Structural Engineers’s Design of foundations to Eurocode 7 and Half-day Seminar on Eurocode 7; Professional Solution’s one-day courses on Eurocode 7 – managing the change and Eurocode 7 – making it work; Thomas Telford’s two-day course Geotechnical design to Eurocode 7; Geocentrix’s one- and two-day courses Decoding Eurocode 7, which have been delivered to Atkins, Entec, Gifford, Haskoning, Hyder, and Scott Wilson; and Geocentrix/Atkins one- and two-day courses Decoding the Structural Eurocodes, delivered publicly and to the UK’s Health and Safety Executive. In total, he has delivered courses on the Eurocodes to over 1000 engineers.
