Product Description

From the Back Cover

This is a highly practical and time-saving presentation of the Building Regulations relating to buildings used for public assembly or residential purposes (other than houses and flats), such as theatres, sports stadia, hotels, prisons and halls of residence. It is written in the same accessible format as the author's established companion books covering houses and flats, and shops, offices and factories.
In this book, the Building Regulations have been organized by construction method and classified under the following headings- work below ground; external walls; ground floors; suspended upper floors; roofs; internal walls; windows, ventilation openings, fire doors and entrances; staircases, ramps, terraced seating and viewing slopes; hearths for solid fuel appliances, flues and chimneys; gas- and oil-fired equipment, heating, hot water and lighting; washrooms, toilets and above-ground drainage; below-ground drainage, rainwater disposal and solid waste storage; means of escape and fire-fighting facilities; provisions for the disabled; car park buildings and surface parking areas.
Each chapter forms a self-contained unit covering all the Regulation requirements applicable to a particular part of a building; with this single volume, professionals can ensure that all the Regulations are fully met. Also included is a digest of published standards, guides and technical information as well as reviews of the new Eurocodes currently being introduced.
