A guide to loft conversions that provides building control officers, builders and DIY enthusiasts with guidance on achieving compliance with the Building Regulations. Starting with chapters on the existing structure and proposed structure, it is divided into chapters on the main considerations for a loft conversion. The Loft Conversion Project Guide is an easy-to-use guide to loft conversions and provides building control, builders and DIY enthusiasts with up-to-date and reliable guidance on achieving compliance with the Building Regulations. The need for industry to develop a project guide for loft conversions was identified in the Future of Building Control Implementation Plan, published by Communities and Local Government (CLG) in 2009. As a direct outcome of the Plan, the Construction Products Association has developed this guide, which is supported by the CLG, in collaboration with the National House Building Council, Local Authority Building Control, Energy Saving Trust, Association of Consultant Approved Inspectors and the Federation of Master Builders. It brings together solutions offered in the Approved Documents and third tier guidance, such as industry literature, in one concise and fully illustrated guide. Starting with chapters on the existing structure and proposed structure, the guide is then divided into chapters on the main considerations for a loft conversion, covering topics such as fire safety, windows and doors, and insulation. This is an essential read for anyone looking for a guide which simplifies the building regulations process and offers solutions, where applicable, to achieve minimum, good and best standards for construction.
