Scottish Building Standards in Brief takes the highly successful formula of Ray Tricker's Building Regulations in Brief and applies it to the requirements of the Building (Scotland) Regulations 2004. With the same no-nonsense and simple to follow guidance but written specifically for the Scottish Building Standards it's the ideal book for builders, architects, designers and DIY enthusiasts working in Scotland.
Ray Tricker and Roz Algar explain the meaning of the regulations, their history, current status, requirements, associated documentation and how local authorities view their importance, and emphasises the benefits and requirements of each one.
There is no easier or clearer guide to help you to comply with the Scottish Building Standards in the simplest and most cost-effective manner possible.
