For the nuts-and-bolts on building construction practices and materials, thousands of professionals and students of architecture, engineering, and construction technology have turned to Edward Allen and Joseph Iano's "Fundamentals of Building Construction." This new "Fifth Edition" of the bestselling reference and textbook provides the most up-to-date survey of the basic materials and methods used in building construction.
Using the latest building codes, standards, and developments in materials and technologies as its basis, this book covers the complete range of construction activities--from excavating and foundations to cladding and interior finishes--and examines common construction systems such as light wood frame, masonry bearing wall, steel frame, and reinforced concrete construction.
The Fifth Edition adds a host of updated and completely new information on such current topics as:
The changing role of the construction contractor in the process of making buildings
Construction management and methods of project delivery
Controlling the movement of heat, air, and moisture through the building enclosure
Sustainability and green building techniques
Innovations in glass, concrete, wood, and other construction materials
The 2006 International Building and Residential Codes, 2004 MasterFormat, and the latest ASTM references and LEED standards
Supplemented by "Exercises in Building Construction, Fifth Edition," available separately, "Fundamentals of Building Construction, Fifth Edition" lays the foundation every architect and construction professional needs to build a successful career.
