|Publication Date:||22 December 2003|
|ICS Code (Ceilings. Floors. Stairs):||91.060.30|
This part of BS 8204 gives recommendations for constituent materials, design, work on site, inspection and testing of in situ concrete direct finished base slabs, with concrete as the wearing surface, and wearing screeds (formerly known as high strength concrete toppings and granolithic toppings). It applies to both ground-supported floors and suspended floors.
BS 8204 does not provide guidance on the structural design of ground-supported or suspended floors. Information on this aspect is given in references  and  and in BS 8110-1.
NOTE BS 8110-1 is obsolescent and will be superseded by BS EN 1992-1-1:2004 in March 2010.
The recommendations in this code of practice relate to those other aspects of the design of concrete floors that affect the performance of their wearing surfaces.
