Good Practice Guide: Concrete Slabs and Basements is a guide to the planning, design, detailing, specification and construction of ground floor slabs and basements for residential buildings.

It offers guidance on the initial decisions to be made, and the subsequent steps to be taken, to complete the design and construction of concrete slab floors and basements suitable for a wide range of situations.

Straightforward procedures are set out that, if followed, will avoid the unnecessary faults, problems, increased initial costs and remedial costs that can occur if good practices are not followed.

The text is liberally interspersed with explanatory sketches and photographs.

It is written for:

  • architects and designers
  • builders
  • concrete installers.
