  7. Fundamental Building Technology 2nd Edition ( January 2013)

    'The second edition of this excellent text builds on the detail of the original – each chapter contains clear and concise information on all parts of the construction process from site investigations to finishes using high quality diagrams to support the text. Each chapter also contains self-assessment questions which help the student gauge their understanding of the main concepts – I would recommend this book not only to academics but to new vocational practitioners as an essential read. Brilliant.'
