Product description

Since publication of the first edition in 1976, The Building Regulations: Explained and Illustrated has provided a detailed, authoritative and well illustrated guide to building control in England and Wales, for all those concerned with building work. This latest edition has been fully revised throughout to ensure it continues in that strong tradition. In particular, Part B Fire, Part G Hygiene and Part L Conservation of Fuel and Power have seen major changes to reflect recent changes to the regulations.
