5.0 out of 5 stars COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO FORKING OUT FOR THE REGS!, 1 Sept. 2003
As a Civil Engineer working in a building services environment, I found this book to be an exceptionally useful reference book for guidance and interpretation of the 'Regs'.
“Building Regulations - In Brief” is true to its title and summarizes, succinctly, the requirements of The Building Act. It provides clear illustrations of contentious items and contains unambiguous, precise, easily understood detail and explanations of the current Building Regulations
Building practice, techniques, components and procedures are clearly defined with supplementary references to regulations and relevant standards. Laid out in a simple manner, it provides a quick to find reference to almost every aspect of construction - thankfully without pages upon pages of explanatory writing (which is a welcome change from other books on this topic that I have read!)
As well as being a valuable reference manual for construction professionals and DIY builders (working on simple projects such as building extensions and building adaptations), this book will appeal to architects, planners, surveyors, builders, designers, building control professionals, building inspectors, regulators and students. Certainly a cost effective alternative to forking out for the Regs!
