Product description

From the Back Cover

Construction Technology provides a comprehensive introduction to every aspect of the technology of domestic low-rise construction, including elements of commercial construction, and the principal associated legislation.
Based on Construction Technology Volumes 1 and 2, this combined new edition has been updated in line with contemporary legislation and practice. In addition a substantial amount of new material has also been included in order to cover recent developments in technology affecting the construction industry. The style of the original books by Roy Chudley has been retained, avoiding lengthy descriptive passages and leaving the original diagrams to illustrate best practice and techniques.
This book covers the basic elements of substructure (site works, setting out and foundations) and superstructure (flooring and roofs, simple finishes, fittings and fixtures) as well as basic services such as water, gas electricity and drainage. It also considers low-rise framed industrial and commercial buildings.
Key features
* assumes no previous knowledge of the subject
* covers conventional methods of construction where everything is constructed on site
* presents a rational and logical progression of subjects which follows the construction sequence
* represents contemporary and established practice
* retains elements of historic practice for maintenance reference
* avoids lengthy descriptions by using detailed illustrations
* includes up-to-date references to current legislation and regulations, including the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994 and the Construction (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1996
Construction Technology will be an essential text for all students coming to the subject for the first time, whether they are on GNVQ, BTEC HNC/D or degree programmes in construction or related topics. It will also be an ideal reference for students on construction crafts courses.
Roy Chudley was formerly a senior lecturer in building technology at Guildford Country College of Technology. Roger Greeno is a consultant, examiner and established author of many construction papers and publications, with extensive experience in further and higher education; he formerly lectured at the University of Portsmouth.

Format: Paperback
One step further than Chudley's 'Building Construction Handbook'. This book provides a more in depth, yet still clear and concise guide to all basic elements of building. Again another 'must have' for student and site management alike.

As a mature student studying in my second year of a building surveying degree with twenty years experience in the construction industry, I can tell you that the best book for any student studying in higher education in building or construction at either college of higher/further education/technical college, HND or degree level is 'Construction Technology' by Roy Chudley, fourth edition (ISBN number 0131286420).

I bought this as a further reference book, as I am currently completing my APC in Building Surveying. The book is great and gives you a good understanding on traditional construction techniques.

I would recommend this to anyone completing a construction related course or working towards there RICS APC.
