9781405188548: Barry's Introduction to Construction of Buildings

This new edition of Barry’s Introduction to Construction of Buildings adds considerable new material but remains based on the original concept of explaining construction technology through key functional/performance requirements for the main elements common to all buildings. Of particular note in this new edition are a fully integrated approach to environmental issues and construction sustainability.

The rest of the material has been updated as required, with particular attention paid to the illustrations. With over 150 new photographs and many revised figures, plus a supporting website at www.wiley.com/go/barrysintroduction,   students learning the fundamentals of building and construction on undergraduate and other NQF level 5 - 6 courses will find this the ideal introduction to the subject.

Book Description:

The five-volume series Barry's Construction of Buildings has long been established as a standard text on building technology. However, a substantial update has long been required, and while doing this the opportunity has been taken to reduce five volumes to two in a more user-friendly format. The introductory volume covers domestic construction and brings together material from volumes one, two and five. The extensive revision includes modern concepts on site assembly, environmental issues, and safety, and features further reading.
