978-1-4051-9479-2 / 1-4051-9479-0 276 pp. Pub: 27/04/12 Building Design

Provides detailed design procedures and reference material on what is now widely regarded as an economic, structurally sound and versatile form of construction for multi-storey buildings.

A core textbook on translating creative designs into functional buildings for undergraduates in architectural technology, architectural engineering, architecture, building surveying and architecture. Since the publication of the first edition of Architectural Technology, in 2002, there have been significant developments in the number of courses, the profile of the discipline as well as significant changes in the Construction sector. This second edition addresses these challenges directly. Much greater emphasis is given to the three core themes of the book - Environmental Sustainability; Innovation; and Design. An increase in the visual material included reinforces the critical role of Design, aiding students to better translate conceptual designs into built artifacts. Building upon solid teaching practice from the previous edition, Architectural Technology is now more concisely structured to take the reader through the whole life cycle of a building, emphasising sustainability and building performance. Material on digital information, building information modelling (BIM) and information communication technologies has been updated. Most chapters have been re-titled to emphasise the importance of design and make the book more accessible to a wider range of students. Chapters conclude with updated/more extensive links to further reading. •

Wood in Construction: How to Avoid Costly Mistakes

Law Environmental and Energy Law

Jim Coulson

978-1-4051-7787-0 / 1-4051-7787-X 672 pp. Pub: 11/05/12 Environmental Law

Wood is an excellent material for use in construction but, as a natural material, it can cause problems when inappropriately specified or used.

Bridges the knowledge gap between legal developments designed to achieve environmental and/or energy-related objectives and the practical, scientific and technical considerations applicable to the same environmental problems.

Wood in Construction focuses on the basic principles and appropriate use of wood in construction and illustrates how to avoid or minimise problems, to ensure that wood performs as expected when used in a construction application. Based on the author's extensive experience of manufacturing processes and practical applications in the timber, construction, joinery, shop-fitting and furniture industries, Wood in Construction provides a guide to using wood in building in the real world. It describes the main causes of difficulty when using wood, and shows how to avoid or minimise problems, reducing the difficulties for the architect, engineer or specifier, builder and building owner.

Environmental & Energy Law attempts to bridge the knowledge gap between legal developments designed to achieve environmental and/or energy-related objectives and the practical, scientific and technical considerations applicable to the same environmental problems. In particular, it attempts to convey a broad range of topical issues in environmental and energy law, from climate and energy regulation, technology innovation and transfer, to pollution control, environmental governance and enforcement. In addition the book outlines key sector specific legal regimes (including water, waste and air quality management), focusing on issues or topics that are particularly relevant to both environmental and energy lawyers, and engineering, science and technology-oriented professionals and students. In this vein, the book guides the reader on some basic practical applications of the law within scientific, engineering and other practical settings.

Technical enough to explain why things should be done in specific ways, but also practical enough to demonstrate how to use wood correctly and avoid doing the wrong things, this is an invaluable resource for construction specifiers (architects, engineers), carpenters, structural engineers, building surveyors, small/medium sized builders. •

A guide to using wood in building in the real world.

Shows how to avoid or minimise problems with the uses of wood, reducing the difficulties of using wood in building.

Technical enough to explain why things should be done in a specific way but also practical enough to demonstrate how to use wood correctly and avoid doing the wrong things.

By adopting a multi-disciplinary approach to environmental and energy law, the book embraces all readerships and helps to address the often thorny problem of communication between scientists, engineers, lawyers and policy-makers.

Extensive case studies drawn from the author's experience show both good and bad practice.

Construction specifiers (architects, engineers), carpenters, structural engineers, building surveyors, small/medium sized builders.

Samuel Labi

978-1-119-95155-1 / 1-119-95155-0 416 pp. Pub: 08/06/12 Soil (Civil Engineering)

Presents a holistic, integrated, systems approach to the evaluation, analysis, design and maintenance of civil engineering systems

Giving readers the tools to understand and analyse common problems in structural engineering, foundation engineering and soil-structure interaction, this book is accompanied by Excel Spreadsheets and employs the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macro programming language to allow a practical understanding. The book demystifies complex soil and structure applications using simple modelling techniques to present the essentials in a clear and concise way. It also shows the theory behind the programming of the finite element method, and how analysis using Excel spreadsheets and VBA macros can be used to test underlying assumptions of FEM tools. By providing an expert system and guidance to the reader in its use through examples, the text shows how an analysis of any structure or soil-structure system, regardless of complexity, can be conducted. It explains the operations being performed by all the computer programmes in a general manner, and any limitations, simplifying assumptions, or approximations inherent in the method. The book also addresses some of the common problems and misunderstandings in the theory and practice of geo-engineering by providing tools to calculate deformations; implement soil-structure interaction procedures for many problems; provide reality checks on more complicated procedures; and enable proper implementation of soil and rock properties in analyses.

978-0-470-65635-8 / 0-470-65635-2 200 pp. Pub: 16/03/12 Construction Management

Shows how to use mobile and pervasive computing to realise significant productivity improvements in architecture, construction and engineering (AEC), for example with improved materials management, project management and collaboration.

Public private partnership (PPP) arrangements are popular with national governments as they bring a private sector funding to develop public infrastructure. Managing a PPP project is not a routine job, so this book will deliver the insight and strategic tools necessary to assist PPP managers to achieve successful project outcomes. Managing PPP projects is not a routine job, as every PPP project is different and should be managed accordingly. These projects require considerable capability and skills from both public sector and private sector managers involved, Strategic Issues in Public Private Partnerships, Second Edition, delivers the insight and tools necessary to assist those managers. As Public private partnership (PPP) arrangements become an increasingly popular way for national governments to fund and develop public infrastructure and urban areas with private sector contributions, a better understanding of the risks involved is crucial. •

Provides an international overview of the application of concessions - the most common form of PPP eg PFI (Private Finance Initiative); BO(O)T (Build / Own / Operate / Transfer) or DBFMO (Design / Build / Finance / Maintain / Operate).
