Book Description
Designed in a structured, directed format to help develop understanding, rather than just providing a simple source of information, this popular undergraduate textbook offers comprehensive coverage of industrial and commercial building technology. It builds on material in the first volume in the series Construction Technology 1: House Construction but it is also valuable as a standalone text. The most student-friendly textbook in the area, it uses a wealth of features to reinforce understanding and test knowledge, including case studies and comparative studies. Case studies include photographs and commentary on specific aspects of the technology of framed buildings, while comparative studies allow the reader to make a critical evaluation, comparing and contrasting design details and solutions. This textbook is aimed at undergraduates in Construction Management, Quantity Surveying and Building Surveying, and HNC/D students in the same areas. It is also ideal for associated Built Environment courses e.g. Land Management, Civil Engineering, where the basic technologies need to be understood. New to this Edition: - Thoroughly revised throughout - New material on sustainable construction incorporated as a key theme in each aspect of technology - A new chapter on building services installations - A new section of the highly topical subject of Building Information Modelling (BIM)
