Current changes and pressures to transcend professional barriers throughout the construction industry are being reflected in the way built environment education and training is now planned and designed. Courses are focusing on aspects which are common to all the subjects to foster a multi-professional approach and lead to better collaborative practice. The Built Environment Series of Textbooks (BEST) provides the texts which are relevant to more than one course and addresses areas of commonality in an original and innovative way. Learning aids in the texts - chapter objectives, workpieces and checklists - will test your understanding. A clear structure to each chapter makes it easy for you to follow and absorb the information. Essential for tomorrow's architects, planners, quantity surveyors, landscape architects, building surveyors, housing managers and estate managers. Law is a complex subject and has a major impact on the built environment and all those working in it. It forms perhaps the strongest interdisciplinary link between the various areas within the built environment and Legal Frameworks for the Built Environment provides the broad understanding of legislativ frameworks, statutory controls, policies and procedures, as well as of the law and its applications, that is essential to all built environment professionals.
