Barry’s Introduction to Construction of Buildings

Written by: Stephen Emmitt & Christopher Gorse

  • This new edition of Barry’s Introduction to Construction of Buildings adds considerable new material but remains based on the original concept of explaining construction technology through key functional/performance requirements for the main elements common to all buildings.
  • Particular note in this new edition are a fully integrated approach to environmental issues and construction sustainability.
  • The rest of the material has been updated as required, with particular attention paid to the illustrations. With over 150 new photographs and many revised figures, plus a supporting website, students learning the fundamentals of building and construction on undergraduate and other NQF level 5 – 6 courses will find this the ideal introduction to the subject.
  • Best available textbook for students of Architecture, Architectural Technology, Construction and Building Surveying currently available. Its comprehensively updated
  • It is clear and comprehensive and I would not hesitate to recommend it, with Barry’s Advanced Construction of Buildings, to students studying construction technology.
