Book Description

This Good Building Guide (Parts 1–5) considers the construction of new and replacement domestic floors and their repair.
Part 1 describes ground floor construction in new buildings and in refurbishment work where floors are being replaced. It is concerned mainly with domestic buildings, but some recommendations apply equally to other types of building. Parts 2–5 explain how to assess different types of floor construction for replacement or repair, and how to repair them.
This guide is of interest to designers, building surveyors and builders. This update to Part 1 replaces the guidance published in 1997.
