Summary

First published in 1995, the 3rd edition Construction Surveying and Layout has been brought to a new level of excellence by expanded details, new step-by-step processes, numerous "how-to" methods, and down-to-earth tips and techniques. Full of superbly detailed illustrations, this creative book contains enhanced chapters, new chapters, added resources, and improved layout for easier referencing, reading, and learning.

Key Features:

  • Revised chapters present a more logical arrangement of topics for improved learning.
  • More than 100 detailed step-by-step surveying measuring and calculating processes to make understanding easier.
  • Over 1400 in-depth illustrations showing how to perform field and office work activities.
  • A combination of English and metric measurements and calculations, as well as refreshers on mathematics, conversions, and useful tables.
  • 500 additional questions and problems.
  • Nearly 100 field and office exercises and activities to enhance knowledge.
  • Chapter summaries that identify Important Points as well as Mistakes and Errors from practicing surveyors and field engineers.
  • Easy-style reading with key points and "rules of thumb" identified.

This text is intended for those who are learning or performing surveying field measurement and layout processes. It is suitable for technical and college-level courses in construction sciences, building construction, and civil engineering, and is recommended as a reference for contractors, construction management, engineering, architectural, and design-build firms. With an emphasis on eliminating mistakes and reducing errors, many companies use this text as their field surveying training manual, or provide it to layout personnel for self-study and personal improvement of field and calculation techniques. Anyone who is involved in construction should have this as a resource available for its common-sense approach to surveying and layout activities.
