Building Regulations Explained - 1995 Revision (Hardcover, 5th Ed): J Stephenson Building Regulations Explained - 1995 Revision (Hardcover, 5th Ed)
J Stephenson
R1,742 Discovery Miles 17 420 Out of stock

Most of the chapters have additional comment and also incorporated are the alterations brought about by the Building Regulations (Amendment) Regulations 1994. The main purpose of these regulations is to strengthen the requirements of Part L relating to the conservation of fuel and power.;The new requirements are aimed at reducing CO2 emissions from buildings by involving cost-effective measures without introducing "unacceptable" technical risks, while at the same time maintaining some flexibility for designers. It has been estimated by BRE that the energy performance of space and water heating in houses will be improved by between 25 and 35%. Not everyone agrees, and the inclusion of fuel costs in calculations has caused quite a rumpus.;Alterations to Part F are designed to improve and simplify provisions for ventilation in dwellings with a wide range of options on how this may be acheived. Non-domestic buildings are for the first time affected by additions to Part F. In Part A the requirements relating to disproportionate collapse have been simplified.;There is also a new regulation, 13A, which has been introduced to allow local authorities to certify building work which should have been subject to control but was previously unauthorized.;There are notes in a new chapter 23 referring to an approved document prepared by the Timber Development Association; a collection of appeal and determination decisions based on the 1991 Regulations and many additions to the various lists of "relevant reading" throughout the book.

R345 Discovery Miles 3 450 Out of stock

The first chapter provides a brief introduction to the theory of fire safety and introduces the technical terms which the architect will come across from manufacturers and authorities. The main part of the book consists of five chapters examining the five tactics available to the architect to achieve safety: prevention, communications, escape, containment and extinguishment. These are considered as design parameters and are relevant throughout the design process. Consideration of these tactics will ensure that the building not only complies with the legislation, but more importantly, offers a reasonable level of safety.The last chapter summarizes the more detailed information available to the design team and outlines the basic elements of fire safety legislation in the UK. The key bodies and additional sources of advice are also listed, along with glossaries of relevant technical terms.

Urban Planning and the Development Process (Hardcover): C. David Adams Urban Planning and the Development Process (Hardcover)
C. David Adams
R2,665 Discovery Miles 26 650 Out of stock

This text is about the very essence of urban planning in a market economy. It is concerned with people - landowners, developers, investors, politicians and ordinary members of the public - who produce change in towns and cities as they relate to each other and react to development pressure. Whether such change occurs slowly and is almost unnoticed, or happens rapidly and is highly disruptive, a production process is creating a finished product: the built environment. This form of production, known as the land and property development process, is regulated but not controlled by the state. Urban planning is therefore best considered as one form of state intervention in the development process.;Since urban planning would have no legitimate basis without state power, it is an inherently political activity, able to alter the distribution of scarce environmental resources. Through doing so, it seeks to resolve conflicts of interest over the use and development of land. However, urban plans that appear to favour particular interests (such as house-builders) above others (such as community groups) provoke intense controversy. Development planning can thus become highly politicized, with alliances and divisions between politicians not always explained by traditional party politics.;These issues are explored with particular reference to statutory plan-making at the local level. The author draws on his extensive research into urban planning and development, making use of recent case studies and examples to illustrate key points. There are four parts. The first explores the operation of land and property markets and development processes, and examines how the state intervenes in the form of urban planning. The second part looks at the people and organizations who play a critical role in shaping the built environment and considers their relationship with the planning system. Specific attention is paid to important actors in the development process, such as landowners, developers, financial institutions, professional advisers and to the variety of agencies in the public sector that aim to promote development. This concludes with discussion of public-private partnerships and growth coalitions. The third part of the book concentrates on local development planning.

The Restrictive Covenant in the Control of Land Use (Hardcover): D.L. Sabey, Ann R. Everton The Restrictive Covenant in the Control of Land Use (Hardcover)
D.L. Sabey, Ann R. Everton

This text is concerned with the privat and public control of land use; the former through the restrictive covenant, the latter by planning (development) control. With its emphasis on the former, and the manifesttion of the restrictive covenant both severally and in teh building scheme, it explores the contrasting objectives and possible futures of private and public control. The main theme of the work is preceded by a succinct exposition of the evolution of the restrictive covenant and its adaptation to changing social and economic need, and followed by a critical assessment of the future direction of the restrictive covenant in a system dominated by public planning (development) control and environmental regulation. Drawing on experience outside the UK (particularly the USA), it considers how private property interests increasingly protect matters not only outwith planning control, but also by way of extending and supplementing that particular form of regulation.

Chappell D
R321 Discovery Miles 3 210 Out of stock

This book is written as a helpful general guide to three popular forms of contract in the JCT series, namely: The Standard Form of Building Contract with Quantities 1980 (JCT 80), The Intermediate Form of Building Contract, 1984 (IFC84) and the Agreement for Minor Building Works 1980 (MW 80).;It has been thought sensible to arrange the guide under a series of topics rather than undertake a clause-by-clause interpretation because there are dangers in looking at the clauses in isolation and taking too literal an approach. References to case law have been inserted for the benefit of those who wish to read further and to show the way in which contract provisions have been interpreted by the courts.;This book should be of interest to building contractors, and subcontractors, architects and surveyors, students of building.

Refurbishment is big business - and an industry that is growing quickly. In Britain there are over 1/2 million listed buildings. More than half the construction work going on in Kent, for example, which has more listed buildings than any other county in England, involves the refurbishment of listed buildings. Yet many are unsure of the legislation and procedures surrounding this work and often proceed without consent, which can result in prosecution, fines or even imprisonment. This text should be a useful tool for property developers, architects, planners and all those fighting to protect the heritage around them.;Michael Ross, the former Head of Listing at the Department of the Environment, has written this guide, accessible to non-lawyers, to the jungle of legislation concerning historic buildings. Set out in plain, jargon-free terms, it provides a guide to all aspects of conservation policy. It includes spot listing, the granting of listed building consent, conservation area controls, ancient monuments legislation, the provisions relating to rescue archaeology, sanctions against the neglect of listed buildings and the grants and loans available.;This handbook doesn't limit itself to cathedrals and stately homes, it also concentrates on local buildings of historic importance, such as the Victorian brick corner shop or local factory and explains how you can save them. It will be particularly valuable to the work of the local conservation group.;This book should be of interest to planning officers, developers, architects and builders, local history groups and amentity societies, and final year undergraduate students on planning courses.

R604 Discovery Miles 6 040 Out of stock

This text covers the law governing construction contracts, and the management and administration of those contracts. Although the legal principles involved are an aspect of the general law of the contract, the practical and commercial complexities of the construction industry have increasingly made it a specialist area.;If lawyers need a greater appreciation of the practical issues arising in constructin cases, there is no doubt that construction professionals need to be better informed about the relevant principles of law. This book, although addressed primarily to the latter group, should be of great assitance to both.;Those who already have a basic understanding of the principles of contract and tort should find this book useful. It takes them through the issues peculiar to construction contracts, illustrating those issues throughout by reference to a range of standard form contracts used in the industry.

Land Law: Themes and Perspectives provides a collection of specially commissioned essays for students studying land law at undergraduate level. The book brings together leading authors, as well as some younger scholars, and explores land law from a variety of traditions within legal scholarship. The book contains chapters on topics essential to all land law courses, and seeks to question the boundaries of the discipline and to engage with wider debates about the role of land in society. The five parts of the book address separate themes within land law. The first part explores what is meant by 'property in land'. Part two sets land law in a historical perspective, from romanist ideas on land through to recent land law reforms. Part three explores the connections between land law and citizenship, with chapters on women's claims to property, adverse possession, mortgages, homelessness, indigenous peoples in Australia, and post-apartheid laws in South Africa. Part four discusses a range of policy issues from the family home to the increasing 'europeanization of land law'. The final part of the book explores land law from a more traditional, doctrinal perspective, opening with a chapter setting out the five keys to an understanding of land law. It will be invaluable reading for all undergraduate students of land law as well as postgraduate students and researchers working in the area.
