Explore the breadth and depth of our publishing program – books aimed for professionals and students within the building and construction industry.

Following our recent acquisitions the publishing program around our Building and Construction list has increased substantially. The breadth and depth of publishing now on offer, ensures that both professionals and students have access to all the latest information within the area. The Routledge imprint has long been the home of our planning, landscape, and architecture books and is well-recognized within these professional and academic markets worldwide. It is our intention to continue the impressive growth of our construction book publishing under the Routledge imprint, moving away from our SPON Press imprint. This imprint still remains for the SPON Press Price Books.

Our building and construction list publishes books for both the professional and academic audiences.

On these pages you will find information from the list which covers Building Project Management, Building Services Engineering, Building Techniques, Construction Management, Construction Materials and Building Regulations.

  1. Specifying Minor Works authors chat with Routledge

    "One of the principal problems faced by property owners who are lay persons (i.e. in regard to property and construction matters) is not necessarily that they do not know all of the answers, but that they do not know all of the questions that they should be asking."

  2. Author Paul Stollard talks about reconciling design and fire safety

    To assist designers who want to understand the principles behind the legislation, and perhaps more importantly to support the statutory authorities who must understand these principles, Routledge has just published the 4th edition of Fire from First Principles, a design guide to building fire safety. It has been fully updated, with all the current legislation and guidance, and now also includes a couple of contributed chapters covering the situation in the USA, Hong Kong and China. It assists the process of integration by outlining the fundamental principles of fire safety so that architects, building surveyors and others in the design team can work from first principles to ensure an integrated design, where safety is imperceptibly achieved without detriment to any of the other objectives.
