More About This Book

Overview

Set out along the "RIBA Plan of Work", this work helps designers to understand the practical implications of the legislation, highlighting particular problem areas and offering pointers about how they may be resolved.

Noise is a matter of critical concern at every stage of construction projects and is controlled through a broad array of Acts, regulations and standards. Designers are increasingly required to minimise its negative impacts on communities and individuals - be they workers, occupants or neighbours - and failure to do so can disrupt project programmes, increase costs and prejudice building use and client operations.

Set out along the "RIBA Plan of Work" and written by a highly respected architect and acoustician, "Legislation Maze: Noise" will help designers to understand the practical implications of the legislation, highlighting particular problem areas and offering pointers about how they may be resolved. Directly relevant legislation such as the Control of Noise at Work Regulations 2006, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and Part E of the Building Regulations are covered along with less directly relevant ones such as Environmental Protection Act 1990, and together they offer a handy first point of reference for the busy practitioner.

The book is part of the "Legislation Maze" series which comprises short, easy-to-use topic-based guides for construction professionals and students in construction-related fields. It focuses on aspects of design and job management controlled by legislation, regulations and codes where these are otherwise difficult and time-consuming to assimilate.
