A structure is an object constructed of multiple parts and is derived from the Latin word structura which means "a fitting together, building." For the purposes of these definitions, a structure more often refers to a object that is not a building, i.e. it is missing one of these three elements (walls, roof or fixed at one location).

Examples of a structure

  1. A building (fixed or transportable), mast, tower, a steel or reinforced concrete construction, structural cable or telecommunications structure, underground works (including shafts and road, rail, telecommunications and interconnecting tunnels);
  2. A railway line, airfield, dock or harbour, water storage or supply system, electricity or gas generation facility, transmission or distribution facility; or production, storage or distribution facilities for heavy industries; or fixed plant.
