From government's official publisher of the Approved Documents to the Building Regulations comes the latest in the best-selling series of Guides to the Building Regulations. An understanding of what the regulations actually require, and what compliance methods are available is vital for all construction professionals. This straightforward and functional guide summarises the essential information from the Approved Documents and pendant documents to save the busy professional time. Fully up-to-date with the major amendments to the 2010 regulations (Parts F, G, J and L), advice is also given where guidance and standards referenced in the Approved Documents have been revised but the Approved Document itself has not yet been updated, making this undoubtedly the most current book on the topic. Structured by Part of the Building Regulations and organised around key compliance issues, the guidance has been weighted to prioritise problematic issues, such as Part L. An uncluttered and user-friendly layout allows the essentials to be assimilated quickly and enables readers to easily navigate from section to section. Structured and written for the time-poor, Guide to the Building Regulations will be a welcome companion for architects, construction professionals and building control officers alike.
