Housing Standards Handbook

The new Housing Standards Handbook from the NHF, is a one-stop resource for the housing sector now available to buy.

Fully up to date following the government's Housing Standards Review, it sets out the new standards and regulations alongside additional good practice recommendations; providing a comprehensive framework for a project brief. Dealing not just with the 'what', but also with the 'why' and 'how', and illustrated with sketches and diagrams, it's very readable.

While the remit of the book is mainstream housing, it features the HAPPI principles in a chapter on accommodating diversity, demystifies the new rules on accessibility and looks at the special complexities of mixed use buildings.
