The Dictionary of Architectural and Building Technology is a comprehensive summary of vocabulary used across the building industry, from the preparation of the brief through architectural and technical design and documentation, to construction technology and facilities management.
This fourth edition has added 1750 new or substantially revised entries, and over 330 of the existing entries have been updated. There are 70 additional illustrations. The terms have been assembled and cross-referenced by specialists from a range of disciplines with considerable international experience. SI metric and Imperial units are included, and line drawings enhance the explanations.
This comprehensive work will enable students and professionals coming from technical, management and professional fields to grasp vocabulary from outside their areas as they contribute towards the built environment.
