make them relevant to new situations and conditions.
The various previous publications contained and amplifications, supplementary provisions and
amendments to suit such conditions. For the purpose of clarity, continuity and homogeneity, the various
amplifications, supplementary provisions and amendments have been consolidated, incorporated and
inserted into their proper places, and the provisions so amended and/or superseded accordingly dropped.

by the Building Research and Development Staff (BRDS) of the Ministry of Public Works for the
