This document is part of a larger document, Flat roofing: design and good practice, which has been split into parts for ease of use. CIRIA B15 was written in 1993 and has not been modified since. While many of the principles are likely to remain relevant, the position with regard to regulations, specifications and advances in processes and technologies are likely to have changed.
CIRIA was formerly known as the Construction Industry Research and Information Association. They are a member-based research and information organisation who publish reports and technical papers covering building and civil engineering as well as transport and utilities infrastructure.
