Since publication of the first volume of The Construction of Buildings in 1958, the five-volume series has been used by both lecturers and students of architecture, building and surveying, and by those seeking guidance for self-built housing and works of alteration and addition.
The series examines principles of building through the functional requirements common to building, with diagrams to illustrate the application of the requirements.
Volume 1, which deals with foundations, walls, floors and roofs, has been updated to take into account changes in practice.
A new presentation has been adopted for the latest edition, with text and illustrations integrated to provide a reader-friendly layout and to aid accessibility of information.
