Structure and Fabric Part 2 provides a complete and thorough treatment of the principles and techniques used in the construction of a building. This new edition has been thoroughly updated to bring it into line with recent changes in British Standards and developments in construction techniques while retaining the comprehensive approach for which it is renowned. The book begins by discussing general aspects of buildings, such as function, production and structural issues. Each building part is then detailed in terms of function, efficiency, limitations and economy. The nature of the building materials commonly used is taken into account. This book and its companion volume, Structure and Fabric Part One are an ideal resource for students of architecture, construction, surveying and structural engineering. It will also be a useful for practitioners who need to keep up-to-date with current practices.
