Statutory Compliance Road Map - Building Regulations STATUTORY COMPLIANCE DELIVERY – PROCESS OVERVIEW – INITIAL DESIGN STAGES & SUBMISSIONS Dated 22 November 2007

Introduction Stratford City Zone 1 presents a significant challenge in the delivery of Statutory Compliance. It is a very large and complex shopping centre, with extensive parking decks, with interfaces with residential, hotel and leisure accommodation at high levels, and routes into a large public realm and major transport interfaces. The scale, complexity and timescales involved will require a rigorous & proactive approach to issues of public, life, & fire safety, energy conservation, sustainability, access and public confidence. A cohesive and coordinated response to these diverse and important matters of Compliance will ensure that the completed project will set best practice standards in the probity, transparency and democratic accountability The special characteristics of the Stratford City project can be summarised as follows A The scale and complexity of the design tasks B An early construction start is required on site, in order to complete site clearance, enabling and substructure works well in advance of detailed building design works being completed. C The need to secure long lead item equipment well in advance of design works being completed. D A requirement to allow design works to develop, change and modify to ensure the eventual design is able to deliver the necessary retail and cultural freshness to ensure a successful and regenerative commercial presence. E A requirement to establish a Compliance Delivery process that is clear, transparent, accountable, responsive to stakeholders and respectful of democratic oversight. Statutory compliance will be progressed and secured through the conceptual design and initial design work stages using the following engagement measures. 1 2 The Building Regulations Application & Executive Summary; 3 The Part Compliance Strategies (PCS); 4 The Compliance Supplementary Documents (CSD): 5 The Co-ordinating Forums; 6 The Building Control Monthly Meetings 7 Building Control Workshops as required These measures are as follows

1

The Statutory Compliance Roadmap

The design team will engage with the London Borough of Newham and describe in summary the methods, communications and documents that will be supplied in order to describe and evidence the Statutory Compliance Delivery process. The Roadmap consists of the Following documents STATUTORY COMPLIANCE DELIVERY – PROCESS OVERVIEW – INITIAL DESIGN STAGES & SUBMISSIONS STATUTORY COMPLIANCE DELIVERY – PROCESS OVERVIEW – DETAILED DESIGN STAGES & SUBMISSIONS STATUTORY COMPLIANCE DELIVERY – PROCESS OVERVIEW - ORGANISATION AND PROTOCOLS The Roadmap will sets out the proposed elements such as the Building Regulations Application & Executive Summary, The Part Compliance Strategies, The Compliance Supplementary Documents, The Coordinating Forums, their minutes and actions arising, The Building Control Monthly Meetings and Building Control Workshops as required. In Addition to the Statutory Compliance Control Documents (The Part Compliance Statements, & The Statutory Compliance Tracker) as described in the Roadmap document STATUTORY COMPLIANCE DELIVERY – PROCESS OVERVIEW – DETAILED DESIGN STAGES & SUBMISSIONS. The Roadmap will also indicate likely timescales for discussion, exploration, agreement, submission and commentary for the Roadmap processes and documents.

The Building Regulations Application & Executive Summary; (Expected Submission Mid-January 2008)

An early Application for Building Application Approval will be made in mid January 2008. This application will comprise of the Application Form, the Statutory Fee, Indicative Project Drawings, Indicative Project Schedule of Areas and an Executive Summary. The Executive Summary will be a high level document broken into parts which will each address the Approved Document Parts (eg Parts A – N plus Reg 7). The summary will recognize the intention and key requirements under each respective Part and will set out in broad terms how the Project Design will demonstrate Compliance. Where possible, Parts will be addressed with direct statements indicating Intentions to Comply. Those Parts, where complex design processes are underway, will be highlighted and a Part Compliance Strategy will be prepared and presented to address the issues. The Executive Summary will detail those Parts where an Part Compliance Strategy will be prepared and submitted. It is anticipated that the Application and supporting Executive Summary will be submitted by the Middle of January 2008. It is anticipated that the Submission of Application and Executive Summary will inform & enable London Borough of Newham to issue a ‘Passing of Plans with Conditions’ as a response. Matters raised as Conditions or for Clarification will be progressed through discussion and agreement in forming the Part Compliance Strategies and through the Coordinating Forums and Building Control Monthly Meetings

The Part Compliance Strategies (PCS); (Expected Discussion, Agreement, & Submission Period (Mid-Jan 2008 to May 2008)

The Part Compliance Strategies will set out in argued detail the decisions and means by which the Project Design will be shaped to ensure Compliance with the Approved Documents. Each agreed Strategy will in turn inform the Detailed Project Design and be evidenced in the resulting Part Compliance Statements that will follow during the Detailed Project Design workstage. It is anticipated that the following Part Compliance Strategies will be submitted Approved Document

Stage E To Completion Having submitted the Building Regulations Application & the Executive Summary, and by agreeing the Part Compliance Strategies, the project moves into Detailed Design work stages and the compliance activities become more detailed and intensive as new, additional and detailed design information is produced. It is at this stage that compliance in principle will be agreed for all Parts, evidence produced to demonstrate compliance, and detailed matters of interpretation and supplementary information are tracked to agreed conclusion. Finally in the later stages of the project arrangements and procedures are put into place to check and validate the construction works, the fire & life safety systems, and statutory occupation requirements. Statutory compliance will be progressed and secured through the detailed design and construction work stages using a number of inter-related coordinating measures. These measures are as follows

1.1 The requirement will be satisfied if, in a flight, the steps all have the same rise and the same going to the dimensions shown in 1.3 or comply with 1.4 and 1.5. 1.2 Three categories of stairs are considered in this Approved Document: ‘Private’ intended to be used for only one dwelling. ‘Institutional and assembly’ serving a place where a substantial number of people will gather. ‘Other’ in all other buildings. a. Private stair: Any rise between 550mm and 220mm used with any going between 245mm and 260mm; or Any rise between 165mm and 200mm used with any going between 223mm and 300mm. b. Institutional and assembly stair: Any rise between 135mm** and 180mm** used with any going between 280mm and 340mm. c. Other stair: Any rise between 150mm** and 190mm** used with any going between 250mm and 320mm. 1.4 Table 1 gives the maximum rise and minimum going for the three stair categories. 1.5 The normal relationship between the dimensions of the rise and going is that twice the rise plus the going (2R + G) should be between 550mm and 700mm. Diagram 1 shows how to measure the rise and going (for steps with tapered treads, see also paragraphs 1.18–1.20). 1.6 In assembly buildings, the gangways may need to be at different pitches to maintain sightlines for spectators and this may affect the main stairs, etc. The maximum pitch for gangways for seated spectators is 35º.

Stairs with goings less than shown in this standard may be considered in conversion work when space is limited and the stair does not serve more than one habitable room. Alternating tread stairs 1.22 This type of stair is one of a number of stair types designed to save space. The general pattern of steps has alternate handed steps with part of the tread cut away; the user relies on familiarity and regular use for reasonable safety (see Diagram 9). 1.23 Alternating tread stairs should only be installed in one or more straight flights for a loft conversion and then only when there is not enough space to accommodate a stair satisfying paragraphs 1.1 to 1.17 above. It should only be used for access to one habitable room, together if desired with a bathroom and/or a WC. This WC must not be the only WC in the dwelling. 1.24 Steps should be uniform with parallel nosings. The stair should have handrails on both sides and the treads should have slip resistant surfaces.

Handrails for stairs

Controlled Document

1.27 Stairs should have a handrail on at least one side if they are less than 1m wide. They should have a handrail on both sides if they are wider. Handrails should be provided beside the two bottom steps in public buildings and where stairs are intended to be used by people with disabilities. See Approved Document M: Access and facilities for disabled people. Elsewhere handrails need not be provided beside the two bottom steps. In all buildings handrail height should be between 900mm and 1000mm measured to the top of the handrail from the pitch line or floor. Handrails can form the top of a guarding if the heights can be matched. Guarding of stairs 1.28 Flights and landings should be guarded at the sides (see Diagram 11): a. in dwellings – when there is a drop of more than 600mm; b. in other buildings – when there are two or more risers. 1.29 Except on stairs in a building which is not likely to be used by children under 5 years the guarding to a flight should prevent children being held fast by the guarding. The construction should be such that: a. a 100mm sphere cannot pass through any openings in the guarding; and b. children will not readily be able to climb the guarding. 1.30 The height of the guarding itself should be as shown in Diagram 11.

Stairs less than 1m wide will have at least one handrail. Stirs wider than 1m will have 2 handrails, one to each side. Handrails will be provided beside the two bottom stairs.

Section 3: Guards and barriers Pedestrian guarding 3.1 Siting Guarding should be provided where it is reasonably necessary for safety to guard the edges of any part of a floor (including the edge below an opening window), gallery, balcony, roof(including rooflights and other openings), any other place to which people have access and any light well, basement area or similar sunken area next to a building. Guarding should also be provided in vehicle parks, but not on any ramps used only for vehicle access. Guarding need not be provided to such places as loading bays where it would obstruct normal use. 3.2 Design Any wall, parapet, balustrade or similar obstruction may serve as guarding. Guarding should be at least the height shown in Diagram 11. Guarding should be capable of resisting at least the horizontal force given in BS 6399- 1996. Where glazing is used in the guarding, reference should be made to Approved Document N: Glazing – safety in relation to impact, opening and cleaning. For further guidance on design of barriers and infill panels, reference should be made to BS 6180-1995 Code of practice for protective barriers in and about buildings. 3.3 Where buildings are likely to be used by children under 5 years the guarding should prevent children being held fast by the guarding. The construction should be such that a 100mm sphere cannot pass through any opening in the guarding and so that children will not readily be able to climb it. Horizontal rails for such guarding should be avoided.

Guarding will be provided to all areas where there is a risk of falling.

Guarding heights will comply with the retail recommendations of Diagram 11. Guarding will comply with the horizontal force recommendations of BS 63991996. Where glazed, the guarding will comply with the Requirements of ADN. BS 6180-1995 has been consulted and incorporated where applicable.

Balustrading to areas where children have access has been designed to prevent a 100mm sphere passing through. In these cases there are no horizontal rails.

Guarding of areas used for maintenance 3.4 Where frequent access for maintenance will be required (e.g. at least once per month), provisions such as those suggested for dwellings in this Approved Document (see Diagram 11) will satisfy the requirement. 3.5 Where access for maintenance will be required less frequently, it may be appropriate to use temporary types of guarding or warning notices. Provisions for such measures are not covered by Building Regulations, but they are covered by the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994.
