Book Description

Principles of Construction is an illustrated guide to the processes involved in a building programme, from inception stage through to completion. This second edition has been updated in accordance with current Building Regulation, with the emphasis remaining on safety and the correct use of materials.

Following a logical procession of concepts and practice, the book includes details of the various aspects of elementary construction and offers an insight into the techniques applied in larger scale projects using standard steel sections and reinforced concrete. Other procedures covered include undertaking a structural survey, recognising structural defects and carrying out remedial treatment.
