Structural engineers and building services engineers need to work together very closely to ensure that the decisions made by the structural engineer will suit the building comfort requirements. The reverse is also true as the technical requirements of a particular services solution may dictate elements of the structural design. Guidance is given in the joint. Concrete society publication services integration with concrete buildings. It is a common occurrence for holes to be cast or cut concrete elements to allow for the passage of services. Whatever possible, the structure should be designed to include a service zone to minimize the need for holes for service run. Preplanning is copiously preferable to retrospective provision of any holes or openings. Such holes are designed into the structural configuration so that the resulting stresses are distributed and do not compromise the structure. These may be a requirement to cut holes at a later stage either due to poor paving or because of a need for new or additional services.
