Easibrief A first stop reference book for building designers

£10.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

This is the third Easibrief book. In 1987 Henry Haverstock's articles in Building Design were first brought together as a book. In 1993 the book was revised and more material added. Now, in January 1999, Building Design is publishing a completely revised edition of the Easibrief with many new sections and other sections revised to reflect the major changes in regulations and technology over the five years since the last edition.

ORIGIN OF THE EASIBRIEF The Easibrief grew from the daily problems of architectural practice - but it is not just a 'practice manual'. Increasingly it has focused on regulations and official guidance , also on topics affecting the routine activities within a design practice. These are things that have come to occupy more and more of practitioners time - leaving less time for design. Easibrief aims to help designers tackle issues quickly, summarising the problems, highlighting the points to watch for, and giving the references or authorities that can carry the designer further into the subject when a more detailed study is needed.

New technologies are being introduced into construction every year - not all work well, snags may only become apparent with wider experience of their use. Henry writes about new uses for lasers in cleaning, new ways to arrange cabling for telephones, television and information networks but also about problems with concrete repair, co-ordination of service supplies, wheelchair access through revolving doors and fire stopping services in stud partitions. Henry looks at the new legislation on adjudication, CDM and party walls and at changes in other legislation. This edition of the

Easibrief includes changes to the England and Wales Building Regulations for energy conservation, ventilation, stairs, glazing and access for disabled people to housing. It anticipates the changes in the fire regulations and the regulation on materials and workmanship - but evolution of the regulations and all other aspects of construction technology is a continuous process. Use the organisation directory and helpliines given in each section to check on latest developments
