The second edition of Construction Technology: analysis & choice has been expanded to include commercial buildings, giving a single textbook covering all the basic forms of construction studies on professional courses. This book takes as its theme the process of choice: what the expert has to know and how he/she might think through the decisions to be made about the design, production, maintenance and disposal of buildings. It is written with the conviction that by focusing on the process of choice, the range of theory and knowledge that is useful to practice becomes explicit, making the link between knowledge and practice, and between understanding and experience. Establishes a comprehensive framework introducing all the key factors that determine the success of a construction solution Explains how environments, structural behaviour, production know how, cost and social concerns such as sustainability can be taken into account in the choice of construction Provides an understanding of the construction details and specifications adopted for housing in the UK at the beginning of the 21st century. The new edition has been updated throughout with extensive additions to Chapter13: Manufacture and Assembly; and to Chapter 15: Sustainability. An entire new section Part III: Commercial Buildings has been added to this edition covering all the main elements of commercial construction.
