Since publication of the first edition in 1976, The Building Regulations: Explained and Illustrated has provided a detailed, authoritative, highly illustrated and accessible guide to the regulations that must be adhered to when constructing, altering or extending a building in England and Wales. The current regulations are the Building Regulations 2010, which came into force on 1 October 2010. Those Regulations have been amended many times since then. The provisions of all the amendments up to the Building Regulations &c. (Amendment) Regulations 2015 (S.I. 2015/767), which came into force at various times between 18 April 2015 and 31 December 2015, are reflected in this book. This latest edition has been fully revised throughout. Much of the content has been completely rewritten to cover the substantial changes to the Regulations since publication of the 13th edition, to ensure it continues to provide the detailed guidance needed by all those concerned with building work, including architects, building control officers, Approved Inspectors, Competent Persons, building surveyors, engineers, contractors and students in the relevant disciplines.
