Review by Publisher Summary 1

This classic book provides an overview of the methods, equipment, and materials used in the construction of large commercial buildings. It makes an excellent source of general information—complete with diagrams, details, photographs, and worked examples of typical construction calculations such as earth moving calculation, formwork calculations, concrete pressures, and insulation values for building components. Each chapter covers the principles and practices of a particular aspect of the construction process—from site layout to building finishes—supporting discussions with its wealth of clear, captivating illustrations. For construction technologists, supervisors, and superintendents at the technology level; architectural and civil engineering technologists; and construction trades people.
