Modern construction handbook

£27.00

Product description

very good condition, no marks or wear

The modern Construction Handbook examines a very wide range of construction options available to the contemporary designer in a concise, digestible format. It illustrates the wide spectrum of construction techniques in use, explaining how materials are chosen and the performance criteria that determine the way they are assembled. Throughout the book, built examples by high profile designers are used to illustrate generally accepted principles. The construction techniques described are applicable internationally. Each of the book's six chapters examines a particular aspect of construction from materials to structure, walls, roofs, environmental design and internal fittings. Specific elements are clearly explained, using a spread-by-spread approach, accompanied by fully annotated drawn details. The Modern Construction Handbook will provide a unique resource for the practising architect and student, as well as other members of the design team.
