Part Q applies to any dwelling; and any part of a building from which access can be gained to a flat within the building. This CPD from Eurocell takes a closer look at the requirements of Part Q, and the guidelines of Approved Document Q in England and Wales; it also discusses the guidelines for Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is intended to help specifiers fully understand what is necessary and how to achieve compliance.
