Architect’s Pocket Book

This  handy  pocket  book  brings  together  a  wealth  of  useful information  that  architects  need  on  a  daily  basis  –  on-site  or in  the  studio.  It  provides  clear  guidance  and  invaluable  detail
on  a  wide  range  of  issues,  from  planning  policy  through environmental design to complying with Building Regulations, from structural and services matters to materials characteristics and detailing. This fifth edition includes the updating of regulations, standards and sources across a wide range of topics.
Compact and easy to use, the Architect’s Pocket Book has sold well over 90,000 copies to the nation’s architects, architecture students, designers and construction professionals who do not have an architectural background but need to understand the basics, fast.This is the famous little blue book that you can’t afford to be without.
Jonathan Hetreed and Ann Ross have drawn from decades
of  experience  of  running  their  own  architects’  practice  in Bath  to  update  and  extend  the  scope  of  this  latest  edition of  Charlotte  Baden-Powell’s  APB,  reflecting  continuing changes  in  design,  construction  and  practice,  incorporating new  contributions  from  consultants  and  suppliers  while retaining  the  compact  scale  and  lively  detail  of  the  original.

Charlotte  Baden-Powell  was  trained  at  the  Architectural Association  in  London.  She  practised  architecture  for  over 40 years, during which time she identified the need for this book, first published in 1997 and still incisively relevant today.‘It  provides  a  simple  quick  reference  for virtually  everything you need to know on a day by day basis. It belongs in every student’s studio-survival pack, with which they can begin to navigate the quantitative labyrinth of being an architect.’
