Abstract:

"For over four decades, Building Construction Illustrated has been the leading illustrated guide to the principles of building construction. With rich illustrations and in-depth content, this book offers students and practicing professionals the information needed to understand concepts in residential and commercial construction, architecture, and engineering. This edition has been revised throughout to reflect the latest advancements in building design, materials and systems, including resilient design, diagrids, modular foundation systems, smart façade systems, lighting sources, mass timber materials, and more. Through extraordinary illustration, renowned author Francis D.K. Ching offers all new illustrations and updated information on sustainability and green building, insulation materials, and fire-rated wall and floor assemblies. This respected, industry standard guide remains as relevant as ever--providing the latest updates in codes and standards requirements including IBC, LEED, and CSI MasterFormat. Ching communicates in a way that resonates with those just beginning their education and those well into their careers looking to brush up on the basics. Building Construction Illustrated is a reliable, lifelong guide that readers will turn to time and again throughout their careers"--
