Building Construction covers the entire process of building construction in detail, from the stage of planning and foundation building to the finishing stages like plastering, painting, electricity supply and woodwork. Each of the basic components of a building are covered separately, including doors, windows, floors, roof, walls, partitions, as are the basic finishing works like plumbing, damp-proofing, ventilation, air conditioning and so on. Essential features of construction like acoustics, fire-resistance and earthquake-resistant design are also covered. In keeping with contemporary needs, the book also includes a chapter on the environmental impact of a building and how to make it green.
The text, presented in simple, precise and reader-friendly language, is amply supported by figures and tables. Together with its companion volume, Building Materials, the book will meet the academic requirements of degree, as well as diploma courses in civil engineering and architecture.
