    Non vertical Soil Stacks

    I am working on a project where a (proposed) internal Soil stack clashes with a partition. It is being proposed that the stack is vertically offset from the vertical by ~5 degrees (300mm over 3.3m). I am struggling to find anywhere within CIBSE / BS that mention offsets from the vertical. Does...
