Summary

Comprehensive in nature, this newly updated book extensively explores construction materials and properties as well as current methods of residential and commercial building construction. Revisions reflect the changes based on the 2004 Edition of Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) MasterFormat and follows the logical sequence of a construction project. The Second Edition is complete with current information that is the result of input from hundreds of manufacturers and professional and trade organizations, and makes frequent reference to building codes relating to various construction materials and methods.

Author Biography

William P. Spence is Dean of the College of Technology as well as Professor of Construction Engineering Technology emeritus at Pittsburgh State University, KS.
