Robin Barry's Construction of Buildings was first published in 1958 in 5 volumes, rapidly becoming a standard text on construction. In its current 2 volume format Barry remains hugely popular with both students and lecturers of construction and related disciplines. The third edition of Barry s Introduction to Construction of Buildings provides the basic material you will need to understand the construction process for the majority of low rise buildings. Construction technology is explained and illustrated through the key functional and performance requirements for the main elements common to all buildings. With a stronger focus on building efficiency and meeting the challenges posed by limiting the environmental impact of buildings, you will find the text fully up to date with the latest building regulations and construction technologies. Particular attention has been paid to the careful integration of all topics, helping you to link concepts and follow related material. The new edition, with supporting website at, provides the ideal introduction to construction technology
