Summary

A new edition of the illustrated architectural classic

Now in a third edition, this bestselling architectural reference features more than 1,100 line drawings, providing a highly visual means of learning about the fundamentals of building construction. This edition features coverage of ADA requirements and environmentally friendly materials, and also includes metric units in addition to the customary U.S. units. The book follows a typical design process--from selection of the building site to building components and mechanical systems to finish work and beyond. Topics are organized within each chapter according to their place in the CSI format. Building Construction Illustrated, Third Edition is an indispensable resource for architects, interior designers, and other building professionals who need to understand available materials and structural choices and how these affect building construction.
