Book Description Applied Science Publishers, UK, 1973. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. First Edition. v, 189 which includes an index pages. The architect's academic training places insufficient emphasis on his responsibility to see that his building design is well constructed in accordance with the drawings and sound building practice. His knowledge of methods of construction and materials to be used is often superficial with a lack of understanding of how these are evolved, made, assembled, handled, stored, protected, finished, react to exposure and use and how they ought to be maintained. This book is probably the first of its kind for it defines the architect's duties and responsibilities on the site and gives guidance to the architect's relations with client, builder, clerk of works and craftsmen in the various trades. It deals with the things to look for and how to find them, what questions to ask and of whom to ask them, what instructions to give and to whom to give them. Claims for negligence against architects are increasing and it is probable that many could have been avoided by better foresight and more penetrating inspections on site. This book provides answers to many of the problems and pitfalls likely to arise.? Contents : 1. Introduction 2. Preliminaries 3. Excavator and Drainlayer 4. Concretor 5. Bricklayer and Mason 6.
