Description

Although the UK's Building Regulations are complex and lengthy, their essential features are relatively straightforward. In this third edition of his bestselling book, Simon Polley brings his brief and practical guide fully up-to-date for Spon, with a number of key changes across the text, and the addition of an excellent new section. Written by this leading industry practitioner, Understanding Building Regulations is well presented, jargon-free, and a great alternative to John Stephenson's much larger and weightier The Building Regulations Explained. It is an excellent introduction for students as well as for professionals who want a first-rate entry-level text.
