Understanding Building Failures

Building defects still continue to plague the construction industry. The lessons learned over the last forty years have not been fully applied. Many new or refurbished buildings still leak or crack. Lack of awareness by designers and installers as to the main mechanisms that trigger such failures remains a problem for the industry. Investigating and rectifying building failures form a major part of building surveyors’ bread and butter work. This book provides guidance on this work for typical residential, commercial and industrial buildings – with advice on how to diagnose a wide range of defects with an emphasis on evidence based practice throughout. It considers both modern and older construction methods, together with new and traditional materials. The particular problems of alteration and renovation work are also discussed. The first four chapters provide information and guidance on the methodology for investigating failures – how to prepare for and conduct an investigation into a building defect and subsequently diagnose its cause in a logical manner. This fourth edition has been updated and expanded to cover the latest diagnostic procedures and research. It also includes Appendices and a new Bibliography, and provides an extensive list of books on building pathology and related topics in the UK and North America. It is essential reading for all students and practitioners interested in building surveying and building conservation.

Illustrated Residential and Commercial Construction is specifically written for students engaged in building studies, including first-year and second-year architectural courses, building technologist and technician courses, apprenticeship training, and upper level high school technical courses. Persons already involved in the construction business who require a broad-based reference book, and members of the general public planning new construction or renovation projects, will also find much of interest. Illustrated Residential and Commercial Construction describes in detail the materials and construction techniques of modern construction together with the basic principles of competent building design. All major building elements from building location and foundations to electrical and mechanical services are presented in a sequence similar to that of actual construction. In each chapter, comparisons are made between the wide range of options available in construction materials and installation methods. The book is profusely illustrated (over 1600 illustrations) and information is presented in a visually interesting and somewhat unique hand-drawn and lettered style. In addition to standard construction techniques, throughout the book emphasis is placed on design construction methods that increase the energy efficiency of a building's structure. This aspect of the construction industry is now a major part of a modern building's function and designers and builders in all climatic regions must be aware of the systems and methods involved. The publisher offers an eBook version, sample pages, and a full table of contents on it's website at
