Advanced Construction Technology by R. Chudley
Advanced Construction Technology provides a comprehensive introduction to every aspect of industrial, high-rise and commercial construction, practice and technology, and the principal associated legislation. Based on Construction Technology Volumes 3 and 4, this combined new edition has been updated in line with contemporary legislation and practice. In addition a substantial amount of new material has been included to cover recent developments and technology. The style of the original books by Roy Chudley has been retained, avoiding lengthy descriptive passages and leaving the original diagrams to illustrate best practice and techniques. This book covers site works, plant and equipment, substructures, superstructures, demolition and temporary work, portal frames, fire protection and escape, claddings to framed structures, formwork systems, pre-stressed concrete, industrial buildings, stairs, internal components and decorations and external works.
