The fifth edition of this successful textbook is aimed specifically at those students and practitioners who require a broad understanding of building construction as part of a wider sphere of professional activity. The book provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles and practice of modern construction and services.

New to this edition are:

   Hundreds of revised graphics to complement the fully updated text

   New illustrations and photos printed in full colour for the first time

   New chapters on sustainability, ventilation and decoration.

This highly sought after text concentrates on principles and practice rather than details and regulations and retains its easy to follow format and highly accessible style. In doing so it enables the reader to demonstrate a comprehensive and genuine understanding of modern house construction and its evolution over the last 100 years.

The Construction of Houses is not only an essential read for students, surveyors, developers and planning professionals, but also the interested lay person considering their first building project.
