Book Description

This newly revised edition is an up-to-date and concise volume, clarifying the Building Acts and Regulations relating to houses, flats and maisonettes, for all construction professionals and students.

Each chapter forms a self-contained unit covering all the regulation requirements applicable to a particular part of a building, dealing with each part in turn.  With this single volume, professionals can ensure that all regulations are fully covered in respect of houses, flats and maisonettes.  Inclusion of the July 1995 changes in the Acts and Regulations ensures the text provides the very latest information.

An ideal reference book for architects, builders, structural and building services engineers. Essential supplementary reading for students undertaking courses in any of the above at HNC, HND and degree level.
