The updates have: removed outdated legislation and replaced it with the latest changes in the Equality Act and the Building Regulations; added a new Chapter on inclusive design (which increases the appeal of the book to designers); increased the number of guidance documents described in areas such as health, education, transport and the international dimension such as the ISO standard; re-arranged the text in the previous edition to improve the balance to the book and to create well-defined sections for 'design', 'legislation' and 'existing buildings'; added overview Case Studies to widen and increase the appeal of the new edition to architects and designers; updated chapters on Design Principles and the Checklists which have been well received in the first two editions; developed an accompanying web site to include additional information which is appropriate to include into a practitioner reference book of this type.
