Explore the breadth and depth of our publishing program – books aimed for professionals and students within the building and construction industry.

Following our recent acquisitions the publishing program around our Building and Construction list has increased substantially. The breadth and depth of publishing now on offer, ensures that both professionals and students have access to all the latest information within the area. The Routledge imprint has long been the home of our planning, landscape, and architecture books and is well-recognized within these professional and academic markets worldwide. It is our intention to continue the impressive growth of our construction book publishing under the Routledge imprint, moving away from our SPON Press imprint. This imprint still remains for the SPON Press Price Books.

Our building and construction list publishes books for both the professional and academic audiences.

On these pages you will find information from the list which covers Building Project Management, Building Services Engineering, Building Techniques, Construction Management, Construction Materials and Building Regulations.
