Building Construction Handbook is an authoritative reference for all construction students and professionals. It is full of detailed drawings that clearly illustrate the construction of building elements. The principles and processes of construction are explained with the concepts of design included where appropriate. Extensive coverage of building construction practice and techniques, representing both traditional procedures and modern developments, are also included to provide the most comprehensive and easy to understand guide to building construction.

This new edition has been updated to reflect the 2011 changes to the building regulations, as well as new material on energy performance, and substantial revisions of the section on structures.
