Construction Technology Fourth Edition- for free


Traditional construction methods are studied in the first two years of most construction courses with the intent of forming a sound knowledge base before studying advanced techniques in the final year. Never the less, there are also elements of continuity and overlap between traditional and modern, and often both are employed in the same building, for example, traditional brick on a prefabricated steel-framed commercial building or a factory-produced wood-framed house.

Early research on building construction concentrated on small-scale types of structures, such as one-or two-story domestic dwellings built with labor-intensive traditional construction methods. In general, it is more economical to construct these types of buildings using these construction methods unless large numbers of similar units are needed on the same site.

In such situations, economies of scale may justify factory-manufactured prefabricated construction components. These industrialized construction methods are usually streamlined manufacturing processes that produce complete sets of elements, such as floors, walls, and roof frames, in modules or standardized dimensional units of 300 mm.

About the Book

Construction Technology covers the basic elements of substructure (site work, foundations) and superstructure (floors, roofs, simple finishes, fixtures and fittings) as well as basic services such as water, gas, electricity and drainage, and also considers low-frame industrial and commercial buildings.

  • An ideal reference for students on construction technology courses such as GNVQ, BTECHNC/D, degree programs in construction or related fields, and an essential text for all students new to the subject.
  • Fully updated to take into account new building regulation requirements. Updated information on building technology to reflect the new regulations.
  • A new chapter, “Access and Facilities for People with Disabilities, “includes both domestic and commercial uses.
  • Additional information covering the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 and the Town Planning Act 1990.
  • Ideally assumes no prior knowledge of the field. Covers conventional site construction methods.
  • Represents modern and established practices. Retains key elements of historical practice for maintenance reference.
  • Captures core information through detailed illustrations.
  • Contains up-to-date references to current legislation and regulations, including the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994 and the Construction (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1996.
