Description

Construction is a complex industry, operating with ever changing legislative needs, new materials and technologies, and constant demands on resources.Professionals are now expected to deliver a broad spectrum of skills and competencies, and this new textbook will help them achieve this. Whilst other textbooks concentrate on individual topics, this brings together the key principles and operating practices of surveying and building engineering. It will enable the practitioner of the future to appreciate the interface between both technical and procedural requirements, identifying barriers and conflicts. The textbook is ideal for final year undergraduates in building surveying, construction management and quantity surveying, and will provide a core resource for the BSc(Hons) degree in building engineering developed in conjunction with the Association of Building Engineers. It will also provide a handy quick reference for practitioners, drawing as it does on a wealth of experience, both academic and professional, from the author team.
