PREFACE TO EIGHTH EDITION This edition retains the predominantly illustrative format of earlier editions, presenting the principles of building construction with comprehensive guidance to procedures with numerous examples of formulated and empirical design. Summary notes are supplemented with references to further reading where appropriate. The content applies to both current and established UK construction practice. This includes the building and maintenance of housing and other low-rise structures and the more advanced techniques applied to medium and high-rise commercial and large industrial buildings. Many examples from previous editions are kept as important references and benchmarks for newer applications. These have evolved in response to material developments and in consideration for environmental issues, not least with regard to energy conservation measures and sustainable building. The UK’s housing stock of about 25 million dwellings includes approximately 2 million units built in the past decade. Therefore, the aftercare of older buildings is an important part of the construction industry’s economy. In order to represent this important sector of maintenance, refurbishment, renovation and remedial work, many established practices are included in the Handbook. Modern construction processes and associated technology are incorporated in this new edition, however the content is not extensive, nor is it intended to be prescriptive. Building design and subsequent construction techniques are varied and diverse depending on availability of materials and skills. This Handbook provided guidance to achieving these objectives, but sufficient publishing space cannot cover every possibility. Therefore, the reader is encouraged to supplement their study with site observation and practice, with further reading of professional journals, legislative papers and manufacturer’s catalogues.

This approach, combined with the presentation of information in a highly illustrated and unique visual style, has proven this text to be a vital learning resource for thousands of building construction students, and an essential reference for professionals. The sixth edition has been updated and expanded to take into account many aspects of the new and revised Building Regulations and associated Approved Documents as applied to working practice; in particular, construction requirements for conserving and economising energy and reducing atmospheric pollution (as this relates to Building Regulations Part L - Conservation of fuel and power). This new edition also develops existing topics, including adaptation of buildings to ensure compatibility for the disabled, further details of masonry construction, applications of steel reinforcement to concrete, steel framed housing principles, sound insulation and additional details of structural glazing. Throughout, reference to supplementary regulations and standards are provided for further reading, and where appropriate, design calculations are included. Online lecture resources are provided, with power point slides available for a selection of topics, featuring essential illustrations for use with presentations and handouts. The Handbook is an invaluable reference for students. It consolidates several years of study material into one comprehensive volume, suitable for a wide range of building and construction courses, including NVQs in Construction and the Built Environment, BTEC Nationals and Higher Nationals in Building Services Engineering, Construction and Civil Engineering, as well as construction related undergraduate degrees (such as Built Environment, Civil Engineering, Building Surveying, Construction Management, Quantity Surveying, Building, Architectural Technology and Facilities Management) and professional examinations. Roger Greeno is a well-known author of construction texts. He has extensive practical and consultancy experience in the industry, in addition to lecturing at several colleges of further and higher education, and the University of Portsmouth. He has also examined for City & Guilds, Edexcel, the Chartered Institute of Building and the University of Reading. Roy Chudley's books on Building Construction have helped thousands of students gain their qualifications and pass exams. He was formerly a Senior Lecturer at Guildford College. * Updated in line with key changes to the building regulations, including Ventilation (Part F), Conservation of Energy (Part L), Part M - Disabled Access, and Part P - Electrical Installation Work * Follows the same unique visual style as its companion title Building Services Handbook (Hall & Greeno) - creates an easily accessible text * Website lecture support material: sets of power point slides for a selection of building services areas featuring essential illustrations, for use with presentations and handouts
