Your value in the construction industry will be measured by your use and understanding of its terminology Concise explanations of over 3000 terms you will hear in conversations, meetings, read in reports, and in advertisements. Provides a single source for terminology in all areas relating to construction, including those often used in real estate, insurance, mathematics, energy conservation, surveying and engineering. Presents the information in nontechnical language making it equally useful to the newcomer to construction and a brush-up for professionals. Numerous illustrations so you can "see what it looks like". Appendix includes a directory of construction associations and government agencies realted to the construction industry, current building codes, and conversion factors. And to un-clutter the book, we have omitted those terms rarely used, outdated or highly technical.
