Building Construction covers the entire process of building construction in detail, from the stage of planning and foundation building to the finishing stages like plastering, painting, electricity supply and woodwork. Each of the basic components of a building are covered separately, including doors, windows, floors, roof, walls, partitions, as are the basic finishing works like plumbing, damp-proofing, ventilation, air conditioning and so on. Essential features of construction like accoustics, fire-resistance and earthquake-resistant design are also covered. In keeping with contemporary needs, the book also inlcudes a chapter on the environmental impact of a building and how to make it green. The text, presented in simple, precise and reader-friendly language, is amply supported by figures and tables. Together with its companion volume, Building Materials, the book will meet the academic requirements of degree, as well as diploma courses in civil engineering and architecture.

Learn the Tips, Become One of Those Who Know Building Construction and Architectural Practice, and Thrive! For architectural practice and building design and construction industry, there are two kinds of people: those who know, and those who don't. The tips of building design and construction and project management have been undercover-until now. Most of the existing books on building construction and architectural practice are too expensive, too complicated, and too long to be practical and helpful. This book simplifies the process to make it easier to understand and uncovers the tips of building design and construction and project management. It sets up a solid foundation and fundamental framework for this field. It covers every aspect of building construction and architectural practice in plain and concise language and introduces it to all people. Through practical case studies, it demonstrates the efficient and proper ways to handle various issues and problems in architectural practice and building design and construction industry. It is for ordinary people and aspiring young architects as well as seasoned professionals in the construction industry. For ordinary people, it uncovers the tips of building construction; for aspiring architects, it works as a construction industry survival guide and a guidebook to shorten the process in mastering architectural practice and climbing up the professional ladder; for seasoned architects, it has many checklists to refresh their memory. It is an indispensable reference book for ordinary people, architectural students, interns, drafters, designers, seasoned architects, engineers, construction administrators, superintendents, construction managers, contractors, and developers. You will learn: 1.How to develop your business and work with your client. 2.The entire process of building design and construction, including programming, entitlement, schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding, and construction administration. 3.How to coordinate with governing agencies, including a county's health department and a city's planning, building, fire, public works departments, etc. 4.How to coordinate with your consultants, including soils, civil, structural, electrical, mechanical, plumbing engineers, landscape architects, etc. 5.How to create and use your own checklists to do quality control of your construction documents. 6.How to use various logs (i.e., RFI log, submittal log, field visit log, etc.) and lists (contact list, document control list, distribution list, etc.) to organize and simplify your work. 7.How to respond to RFI, issue CCDs, review change orders, submittals, etc. 8.How to make your architectural practice a profitable and successful business.

This book addresses the integration of service subsystems such as lighting, heating and air conditioning, water supply, electrical power, waste removal and elevators into a building. The authors discusses and illustrates the construction development of these systems within a building, as well as the response of the general building construction to the incorporation of these systems. Case studies of nine buildings provide an on-the-job look at wide range of building uses, sizes and forms of construction. Designers and builders using this guide gain a rare opportunity to see the specific development of individual subsystems within the context of the general building framework.

Using an innovative, integrated approach, this book explores the linkages between the science of materials and the practices of construction to help future architects and builders deal more critically with the ever-increasing array of new materials and the consequent increase in the complexities of construction. This book presents and integrates the scientific principles of building materials and construction and their relationships with actual practices. Issues are covered that are relevant to every building type regardless of whether the primary material used in the building is wood, masonry, steel, or concrete. It begins with a brief treatment of building codes and standards since all building construction must conform to building codes as a minimum requirement. It provides full-chapter coverage of structural, thermal, fire related properties, transparency, air infiltration, water vapor and (bulk) water penetration, and dimensional control in buildings. It offers a flexible organization, so content can be covered sequentially or in parts. The U.S. system of units is used primarily throughout, but gives the SI system equal treatment.

"Twelve peer-reviewed papers demonstrate the continuing advancement in the understanding of dimension stone used in building construction. Topics cover: Strength Testing--addresses testing to determine strength characteristics of dimension stone cladding panels. Design--covers a wide range of topics, including the advantages and disadvantages of three common dimension stone paving installation techniques; the relationships between stone material strength, anchorage strength, and induced stress states for four common dimension stone cladding anchorage configurations; and more. Evaluation and Investigation--provides observations regarding investigations into the causes of dimension stone cladding deterioration and failure. Durability--discusses the complex issue of dimension stone durability using three different approaches; a large-scale European research project to investigate the causes of marble and limestone cladding panel bowing, develop preconstruction testing parameters to assess bowing potential, and assess proposed remedial efforts to reduce or inhibit ongoing bowing; and more."--Publisher's website.
