Nearly half of all output in the construction industry in the Western world is the repair and adaptation of existing buildings, yet few books have addressed this subject in any depth. 'Building Adaptation' is a textbook for senior students that covers not only the technical aspects of how to carry out alterations, but also addresses issues such as feasibility, design and contractual matters. Numerous illustrations and examples are included that focus on a wide variety of different building types. Professional architects, building surveyors and construction managers will find this a welcome addition to their library and it is essential reading for degree and diploma students of these disciplines.

*Covers the whole adaptation process from inception to implementation and disposal
*Includes case studies and over 130 illustrations
*Looks at commercial, industrial and residential buildings
