The revised edition expands on the resource that has become a standard text on the construction of buildings.

The fourth edition covers the construction of larger-scale buildings (primarily residential, commercial and industrial) constructed with load bearing frames in timber, concrete and steel; supported by chapters on offsite construction, piling, envelopes to framed buildings, fit-out and second fix, lifts and escalators, building pathology, upgrading and demolition.

The author covers the functional and performance requirements of the main building elements as well as building efficiency and information on meeting the challenges of limiting the environmental impact of buildings.

Each chapter includes new "at a glance" summaries that introduce the basic material giving a good understanding of the main points quickly and easily. The text is fully up to date with the latest building regulations and construction technology.

This important resource:
  • Covers design, technology, offsite construction, site assembly and environmental issues of larger-scale buildings including primarily residential, commercial and industrial buildings constructed with load bearing frames
  • Highlights the concept of building efficiency, with better integration of the topics throughout the text
  • Offers new "at a glance" summaries at the beginning of each chapter
  • Is a companion to Barry's Introduction to Construction of Buildings, fourth edition
Written for undergraduate students and those working towards similar NQF level 5 and 6 qualifications in building and construction.
