The fifth edition of this successful textbook is aimed specifically at those students and practitioners who require a broad understanding of building construction as part of a wider sphere of professional activity. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles and practice of modern construction and services. In addition most chapters contain information on earlier construction techniques to reflect the age profile of the UK housing stock. This new edition has a revised text and hundreds of improved graphics, new illustrations and photos printed in full colour for the first time. New chapters on sustainability, ventilation and steel frame builds have ensured that this new edition is fully up to date with today's methods. This highly sought after text concentrates on principles and practice rather than details and regulations and retains it's easy to follow format and highly accessible style. In doing so it enables the reader to demonstrate a comprehensive and genuine understanding of modern house construction and its evolution over the last 100 years. The Construction of Houses is not only an essential read for students, surveyors, developers and planning professionals, but also the interested lay person considering their first building project
