It explains why things are the way they are and investigates the powerful trends for change. This new edition is updated with: the latest DTI statistics, including new information on causes accidents an examination of the effectiveness of initiatives post–Egan a new section on the influence of European initiatives expanded coverage of sustainability and the environmental drivers affecting construction as well as the industry s response an enlarged section on labour resources and the skills gap a new look at the role of IT and how it is changing the design, construction and operation of buildings new case studies on Holyrood and on Wembley Stadium. Students and all those interested in the built environment – architecture, engineering, surveying, construction – will find this a highly accessible and stimulating approach.
