From the Inside Flap

The latest updated edition of the #1 reference on building construction

For the nuts and bolts on building construction practices and materials, thousands of professionals and students of architecture, engineering, and construction technology have turned to Edward Allen and Joseph Iano's Fundamentals of Building Construction. This new Sixth Edition of the bestselling work provides the most up-to-date survey of the basic materials and methods that are used in contemporary building construction.

Using the latest building codes, standards, and developments in materials and technologies as its basis, this book covers the complete range of construction activities—from excavating and foundations to cladding and interior finishes—and examines common construction systems, such as light wood frame, masonry bearing wall, steel frame, and reinforced concrete construction.

This Sixth Edition has been fully updated and includes:

  • More than 200 new or updated illustrations and photographs, as well as 70 new photorealistic renderings
  • The latest innovations in glass, concrete, wood, and other materials
  • Updated chapter sections reflecting the latest information and practices on environmental impact, embodied energy and carbon, and sustainability of materials and construction
  • Current 2012 International Building Code®, MasterFormat®2012, and the most recent ASTM references and LEED information
  • Sidebars addressing sustainability considerations
  • "From Concept to Reality" case studies demonstrating how technical decisions are made in real-world building projects
  • Entirely updated end-of-chapter sections, including selected references, web sites, key terminology, review questions, and exercises
  • Completely revised digital learning resources available on the Interactive Resource Center companion site, including new Interactive Exercises, Animations, Flash Cards, Self-Tests, and Image Gallery
  • Icons found throughout the text indicating availability of Interactive Exercises and Animations on the online Interactive Resource Center companion site to expand learning of difficult concepts
  • Companion book, Exercises in Building Construction, available in print or e-book format

Fundamentals of Building Construction, Sixth Edition lays the foundation that every architect and construction professional needs to build a successful career.
