More About the Author

I am an architect and my experience of working in practice eventually took me down a research route, which resulted in a PhD and then a full time position in the university sector. I try to retain this practical knowledge in my writing. My books are written for students studying a wide range of built environment programmes and span two inter-related areas; architectural (design) management and architectural (construction) technology. Some of my books have resulted from research projects, some from the frustration of not being able to find anything suitable for my students to read, and some from daring to think 'What if ..?'

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Barry′s Introduction to Construction of Buildings This new edition of Barry′s Introduction to Construction of Buildings adds considerable new material but remains based on the original concept of explaining construction technology through key functional/performance requirements for the main elements common to all buildings. Of particular note in this new edition are a fully integrated approach to environmental issues and construction sustainability.  The rest of the material has been updated as required, with particular attention paid to the illustrations. With over 150 new photographs and many revised figures, plus a supporting website, students learning the fundamentals of building and construction on undergraduate and other NQF level 5 – 6 courses will find this the ideal introduction to the subject. Barry′s Advanced Construction of Buildings This new edition of Barry′s Advanced Construction of Buildings retains the emphasis on larger–scale buildings: primarily residential, commercial and industrial buildings constructed with load bearing frames. A considerable amount of new material has been added but the text remains faithful to Barry’s original concept of explaining construction technology through key functional and performance requirements for the main elements common to all buildings. Of particular note in this new edition is the expanded coverage of building and construction sustainability. This is now presented within the main body of the text, rather than as a separate chapter. Material relating to the Building Regulations has been brought fully up to date, and there is a more thorough treatment of demolition. The rest of the text has been updated as required, with particular attention paid to the illustrations. Advanced undergraduate students and those working towards similar NQF level 5 and 6 qualifications in building and construction will find this the ideal book with which to continue their study of the subject.
