Product Description

From the Back Cover

Introduction to Building provides a comprehensive introduction to various aspects of development and associated building procedures, from initial planning and design through procurement of building work, contractual arrangements and construction techniques.

 

Now in its Fifth Edition, this popular text continues to present an authoritative overview of the many design and practical considerations associated with the creation and maintenance of modern buildings, including repair of existing buildings and traditional construction procedures.  Topics covered include the functional requirements of a building: appearance, durability, dimensional suitability, strength and stability, weather exclusion, sound control, thermal comfort, fire protection, lighting and ventilating, sanitation and drainage, security, cost, sustainability, building processes, the building team, communication and construction methods.

 

New for this edition:

  • Contains a new chapter on sustainability, plus new material on cost evaluation and contractual procedures.
  • Thoroughly updated throughout with regard to government guidelines, legislation and construction procedures throughout the building process, particularly as applied to assembly of a two-storey dwelling house.
  • Includes numerous new and updated diagrams and illustrations.

Key features:

  • Clear and concise text, supplemented with comprehensive illustrations demonstrating established techniques and current building practice.
  • References to relevant statutes, current Building and Construction Regulations, British and European Standards, research and practice guidance documents.
  • Up-to-date information on contractual relationships, health and safety responsibilities, JCT and other standard forms of contract.

Introduction to Building is recommended for students of all construction-related courses, including architecture, building technology, construction management, building surveying, quantity surveying, and estate and facilities management.
