Determining the current legal requirements for the design and use of means of escape from buildings in the event of fire poses considerable problems for all professionals concerned with the design, construction, maintenance and use of buildings. Local authorities, approved inspectors and fire officers, responsible for assessing plans, also have difficulty establishing and interpreting the provisions since these are complex and scattered among a wide range of acts and regulations. This book provides a highly illustrated, practical guide for England and Wales and takes account of the most recent amendments to Part B of the Building Regulations involving means of escape.

Contents:
Means of escape - the background; New and altered buildings - the statutory requirements; Buildings in use - the statutory requirements; Means of escape - general principles; Means of escape - principles in practice; Dwellinghouses, flats and maisonettes; Application to buildings other than dwellings; Modification of the basic principles of means of escape; New approaches 1: BS999: Part 1 Means of escape; New approaches 2: Fire safety engineering; Management of fire safety; Appendix A Means of escape case study; Appendix B Fire risk assessment case study
