'Building Construction Handbook' summarises concisely, in diagrams and brief explanations, all the basic building processes and techniques and the regulations that govern them. This practical approach - as familiar as the construction drawing and detail - makes it ideal for any builder. Every building contractor - every site manager, technician and craftsman - will find this handbook a mine of easily accessible information. Students of building construction, architecture, surveying and allied subjects will also value its comprehensive but detailed coverage of all essential aspects of construction works. The second edition has been updated in line with the latest Building Regulations, including new requirements, and other European standards.
