1.5 million people work in the construction industry, generating 65 billion of work each year, defining and creating the environment in which we live ...

Here at last is a thoroughly readable overview of the nature and history of the construction industry.

It will give you a clear understanding of how this vast and complex industry operates at thre same time as exploring its main features - the markets, the principal players, ways of working - and provides the perfect foundation on which to base further study.

Construction UK also offers a context to the controversial issues of today's industry - sustainability, safety, efficiency, employment practices and procurement - explaining why things are the way they are and investigating the powerful trends for change.

Students and all those interested in the built environment - architecture, engineering, surveying, construction - will find this a fresh and stimulating approach.
