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.
