The advantages and disadvantages of each form of compliance are analysed in depth. This book examines in detail Part C on Site Preparation and takes the user through all the key stages of preparation, compliance, inspection and enforcement. *Detailed guidance to Part C *Practical advice to achieve compliance *Alternative approaches explained and evaluated

The IEE Wiring Regulations Explained and Illustrated, Second Edition discusses the recommendations of the IEE Regulations for the Electrical Equipment of Buildings for the safe selection or erection of wiring installations. The book emphasizes earthing, bonding, protection, and circuit design of electrical wirings. The text reviews the fundamental requirements for safety, earthing systems, the earth fault loop impedance, and supplementary bonding. The book also describes the different types of protection, such as protection against mechanical damage, overcurrent, under voltage (which prevents automatic restarting of machinery and devices in the event of a voltage drop). The text explains in detail the stages of the designing process of electrical installation that include the design current, protection rating, correction factors, cable current-carrying capacity, cable size, voltage drop, shock risk constraints, and thermal constraints. The electrician should test the finished installation before energizing it by following a sequence of tests recommended in the Regulations. The book is suitable for electricians, technicians, building foreman, house contractors, as well as for students studying to be licensed electricians and technicians.

This essential reference will prove an invaluable guide for anyone based in the electrical industry working on electrical systems (design, installation, inspection and testing), who requires a comprehensive source of information on the specific requirements of the IEE Wiring Regulations (published by the IET), without having to trawl through the lengthy, complicated coverage of the Regulations themselves. Unlike the majority of texts available on the subject of the IEE Wiring Regulations, which explain how adherence to the Regulations is achieved in working practice, Ray Tricker presents the specifics of the actual regulatory Standard itself in his renowned, easily accessible, and informal writing style. Wiring Regulations in Brief presents the IEE Wiring Regulations with a unique topic-based approach. Unlike the Regulations themselves, related topics are linked – areas such as inspection and testing are presented together in one section. This provides the reader with an exceptionally quick source of reference on all aspects of the Regulations as they relate to a specific area of working practice, which maximises easy identification of practical problems, and Regulations compliance. Part P, which brings domestic electrical installations under Building Regulations control as of 2005, is also covered in detail, to highlight the requirement that any person who carries out domestic electrical installation work, is now legally required to demonstrate their competence in their area of work.

In diesem Band der Reihe "Im Detail" stehen Projekte im Rampenlicht, die sonst immer im Schatten der spektakulären und extravaganten Bauten stehen, die die Fachpresse bevölkern: Bauten, die sich ungeschminkt, ohne Allüren präsentieren und gerade trotz engem Budget bis ins Detail sauber durchgearbeitet sind. Sie zeigen beispielhaft, wie und wodurch kostengünstiges Planen und Bauen möglich ist. Die Bandbreite der Lösungen erstreckt sich dabei vom Einsatz von Standardprodukten bis hin zu innovativen und individuellen Detaillösungen. Kostengünstiges Bauen erfordert besondere Sorgfalt im gesamten Planungs- und Ausführungsprozess. Dementsprechend wird dieser umfassend mit Fachbeiträgen und Projektdokumentationen betrachtet, von der Büroorganisation über die Entwurfsphase, die Koordination der Ausführungsplanung bis hin zur Realisierung. Da Wirtschaftlichkeit heute einer der wesentlichen Aspekte beim Bauen ist, sind überall Baukosten aufgeführt sowie die jeweiligen Strategien und Maßnahmen, die zur kostengünstigen Realisierung führen. Die Bandbreite möglicher Lösungen bietet vielfältige Anregungen für Architekten und Planer.
