Written to work alongside site visits and conventional construction textbooks, Construction Practice will provide you with a comprehensive overview of practical construction technology by showing real construction projects at various stages of completion. Based around a series of full colour photographic sequences, carefully chosen line illustrations and explanatory text, the case studies reveal the practical operations that go into building various structures, from housing to high–rise commercial buildings. The sequences include established practice as well as contemporary and modern methods of construction, and also include some examples of Continental European construction methods where these differ from established UK practice.
This book will be of interest to students undertaking construction technology studies at HNC and HND level, as well as those studying degree courses in Building, Building Surveying, Quantity Surveying and Construction Management.
