Construction Technology 1: House Construction offers a highly accessible introduction to the key stages of domestic house construction from planning to internal finishes. Its student-friendly layout uses detailed figures, photos and case studies from real-life building sites to aid a practical understanding of construction techniques, providing clear step-by-step guidance in learning the basic principles of low-rise residential construction. This textbook is a vital resource for students in construction, property and architecture, BSc and MSc, including any student taking courses in building surveying, quantity surveying, real estate and construction management, as well as those studying at the HNC/HND level. New to this Edition: - The sections on off-site manufacture and modular approaches to construction have been significantly updated and expanded. The nature of house construction utilising panelised and volumetric approaches is explained with supporting case study examples and photographic illustrations. - The increased recognition of sustainability as a key element in modern house building is reflected in expanded consideration of the environmental implications of construction design and practice. - The characteristics of house form, construction and technology that impact upon thermal and environmental performance are included together with updated content relating to SAP calculations and target energy performance. - Advances in technology and evolving approaches to passive features of environmentally-conscious design are incorporated together with the introduction of issues around connected homes. - The material has been amended in line with current UK building regulations, environmental guidance and legislation including statutory control of the building process and health and safety.
