Construction Technology: Volume 2 Summary

Construction Technology: Volume 2 by R. Chudley

The four volumes of Construction Technology provide a comprehensive guide to building technology from simple domestic single storey construction using traditional techniques to more complex multi-storey construction using more modern industrialised techniques. Each volume describes the technology concisely and is well illustrated with the author's own illustrations. The series provides a basic knowledge of all building activities from basic methods of construction in the early volumes through to more complex topics such as site planning, curtain walling and builders plant in later volumes. The series concentrates on the technology and avoids lengthy descriptive passages, leaving the description to the author's very detailed drawings. Volume 2 completes the coverage of conventional methods and materials of construction. As with volume 1, it deals with the construction of a small structure such as a bungalow or two-storey house. The book introduces more complex topics than are covered in volume 1. It deals with site and temporary works, e.g. simple excavations and scaffolding; substructure topics such as retaining walls and reinforce concrete foundations; simple framed buildings; floors and roof structures such as precast concrete floors and asphalt and lead-covered roofs; finishes and fittings such as simple concrete stairs; insulation; and services such as electrical and gas installations.
