The book is suitable for students, academics and practitioners. Chartered building, quantity and general practice surveyors would find it of particular interest. A general knowledge of the technology of building defects is essential, and this book is a worthwhile guide.' - Chartered Surveyor Monthly'...Will be of value to students and novice practitioners alike. ...the book is to be welcomed as a useful addition to the available literature...' - Journal of Architectural Conservation

Zusammenfassung
The Technology of Building Defects has been developed to provide a unique review of the subject. Defects are considered as part of the whole building rather than in isolation. General educational objectives are set out which offer the reader the opportunity of self-assessment. Each section is generously illustrated with photographs and diagrams, forming an accessible self contained review covering the following: objectives; core information; exercises; revision notes; further reading. Taken together these sections build up to offer the reader an understanding of a range of technical topics concerned with building defects. This core text can be used for direct lecture material, seminar and tutorial information, assignment work and revision notes. It is a convenient one stop resource which dispenses with the need to consult a mass of different information sources.
