I wanted to prepare and submit my own home extension Planning & Building Reg. application, whilst I have the skills to do that, It has been sometime since I have been involved in preparing construction detail. This book allowed me to upgrade my own knowledge, illustrating current practice for wall floor and roof detail. Excellent reference and detail through out.

Format: Paperback
This book is clearly and concisely written. It is also well illustrated and covers all the bases - everything from the fundamentals of structural engineering to staircase construction. If you're involved in construction in any capacity, this book is one you'll find yourself reaching for time after time.

It's not quite as well illustarted as a Francis Ching book, but it contains concise and relevant building information for british construction standards. Construction students should own one and read it cover to cover.

A fantastic resource that should be on a reading list of any architecture or ADT course.
I was surprised that students I encountered at University had never heard of it, Chuddleys is like the bible for any construction course.

Well illustrated, well written and explains all elements of construction, including site set out and ground works.

This book serves as an easy to understand introduction to construction technology for complete beginners. It is easy to follow, well laid out and follows a logical sequence. It has plenty of diagrams to help with explanations and addresses the practical aspects of construction where it shows how theory is utilised in practice. A good introductory read.

When I was at college Chudley books were the books of choice for the ONC & HNC Building courses! This book brings them up to date, with some details I can remember remaining in the book, but many new ones as well. (Thermal Bridging wasn't an issue back in the day...)

Despite the fact that I can write and read in English very fluently, the book "Building Construction Handbook" is not recommended for an interior designer. It is only for specialists, architects and civil engineers.
