Summary

Established as one of the leading books on the materials and methods of construction, the Ninth Edition of Construction was renamed Olins Construction to reflect the brand identity that Harold Olin brought to this standard text. The most comprehensive text on the subject, Olins Construction Volumes 1 and 2 cover not only the materials and methods of building construction, but also building systems and equipment, utilities, properties of materials, and current design and contracting requirements. Whether a builder, designer, contractor, or manager, readers have for over two generations mastered the principles of construction operations with Olins Construction, Ninth Edition.
