Book Description

7 Aug 2007 1405161035 978-1405161039 2nd Edition
Building pathology provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of defects and performance in order to develop appropriate remedial and management solutions. It considers how the structure and materials of a building relate to its environment, its occupants and the way the building is used, so as to develop a better understanding of building failures. This book provides a well illustrated introduction to the discipline of building pathology, bridging the gap between current approaches to the surveying of buildings and the detailed study of defect diagnosis, prognosis and remediation. It features a number of case studies and a detailed set of references and further reading. This second edition has been updated to reflect changes in legislation, guidance and construction, and provides new case studies that demonstrate the breadth and depth of the subject.

Review

"David Watt has written a good book: informative, well researched and readable...a welcome addition to the literature on building defects and remedial action" Chartered Surveyor Monthly "An excellent introduction to the subject of building defects and their remediation, as well as being a useful reference work and aide–memoire for experienced workers in the field. It should attract a wide readership among architects, surveyors and building scientists in various disciplines." Journal of Architectural Conservation ′Watt has produced a fine textbook, combining holistic thinking with clear practical advice, lucid writing and some lovely illustrations.′ McCaffer.com

"...provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of defects and performance in order to develope appropriate remedial and management decisions."  ( Journal of Architectural Conservation , November 2007)
