Construction Technology provides a comprehensive introduction to every aspect of the technology of domestic low-rise construction, including elements of commercial construction, and the principal associated legislation. Based on Construction Technology Volumes 1 and 2, this combined new edition has been updated in line with contemporary legislation and practice. In addition a substantial amount of new material has also been included in order to cover recent developments in technology affecting the construction industry. 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 the basic elements of substructure (site works, setting out and foundations) and superstructure (flooring and roofs, simple finishes, fittings and fixtures) as well as basic services such as water, gas electricity and drainage. It also considers low-rise framed industrial and commercial buildings.
