Barry’s Advanced Construction of Buildings, 4th Edition  

Barry, Robin

Preference :

The Introduction volume has retained the same chapter structure, with changes made within chapters to improve readability. The introductory chapter has been rewritten to better explain the process of construction and to place greater emphasis on the environmental impact of construction. The material on timber-framed construction has been moved to this volume, which has allowed for simplification, rewriting, and renaming of Chapter 5 to better reflect the content on loadbearing wall construction. Scaffolding can now be found in the Introduction volume and the material on foundations has been restructured in both volumes to remove repetition.

Content :
  • 1 Introduction
  • 2 Offsite Construction
  • 3 Pile Foundations, Substructures and Basements
  • 4 Single‐Storey Frames, Shells and Lightweight Coverings
  • 5 Structural Timber Frames
  • 6 Structural Steel Frames
  • 7 Structural Concrete Frames
  • 8 Envelopes to Framed Buildings
  • 9 Lifts and Escalators
  • 10 Fit Out and Second Fix
  • 11 Existing Buildings: Pathology, Upgrading and Demolition
