Open Discussion on Future Building Regulations by R.J.M. Sutherland, S.B. Tietz and R.J.R. Cousins

Mr Peter Bullman (M) (Building Design Partnership): In amplification of Mr Cousins remark that the Regulations on structure are not so complicated as other sections, I believe that, as a profession, we are fortunate not to be over-prescribed. If we omit Regulations that govern small buildings, i.e. D2(3), D15, D17 and schedules 6 and 7, then the remainder of Part D is generally a set of functional requirements, with technical standards set by deemed-to-satisfy documents which are produced, through BSI, by the profession itself. The exception, of course, is the section on ‘Accidental damage’.
