Environmental science in building (paperback), 9 Nov. 2012
I am currently studying 'Building studies'. With the information that this book has to offer, i have not only been flying through my essays with the lowest grade of a distinction, but have had all the things that i once thought about in the past in regards of building, answered.
As a general builder, this book has helped me become more knowledgeable in the aspect of choosing building materials. This book teaches you the science behind the materials that is used in todays construction industry. An in-depth description of materials used, the impact it has on the environment is explained.
This book gives you a clear understanding of the 'built environment' and 'natural environment'.
By far the best book i have ever read, and i always refer back to it. My lecturer also loves this book and said that this book could even put me through my masters after i pass my degree of course.
