Book Description

1 Jun 1999 0632050691 978-0632050697 11th Revised edition
The Building Regulations: Explained and Illustrated provides a straightforward, well illustrated guide to building control in England and Wales.

The Eleventh Edition has been updated and revised to include:

∗ revisions to Part K ′Protection from falling, collision and impact′ dealing with regulations on windows, skylights, ventilators and sliding or powered doors and gates

∗ new requirements of Part N ′Glazing′ on safe operation and access for cleaning for windows, skylights and ventilators

∗ new regulations under Part M extending accessibility requirements for disabled people to dwellings

∗ amendments to the Approved Document to support Regulation 7 on materials and workmanship.

The legal and administrative chapters have been completely rewritten to take account of the rapid expansion of the approved inspector system and amendments to the Building Act 1984. A new chapter summarises eighteen Acts of Parliament and statutory instruments that relate to building control.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good well presented book 14 Mar 2002
By A Customer
The book provides excellent coverage of the building regulations however it would be more helpful if mopre diagrams were introduced also some parts would help with a little more explanation. All round a decent alternative to forking out for the building regs.
