The design, construction and use of buildings in tropical climates pose specific challenges to built environment professionals. This text seeks to capture some of the key issues of technology and practice in the areas of building design, refurbishment, construction and facilities management in tropical regions. Using a consistent chapter structure throughout, and incorporating the latest research findings, this book outlines: the functional requirements of buildings in tropical climates; the challenges associated with the sustainability of the built environment, building form and whole life performance in the context of a tropical setting; the impact of potentially hostile tropical conditions upon building pathology and the durability of components, structure and fabric; the tasks which face those responsible for appraising the design, condition, maintenance and conservation of built heritage in tropical regions; the facilities management issues faced in tropical climates; and the refurbishment, upgrade and renewal of the tropical built environment. The book is ideal as a course text for students of Architecture, Construction, Surveying and FM as well as providing a sound reference for practitioners working in these regions.

The second edition of Construction Technology: Analysis and Choice has been expanded to include commercial buildings. This now covers, in a single textbook, all the basic forms of construction studied on professional courses. The book takes as its theme the process of choice: what the expert has to know and how he/she might think through the decisions to be made about the design, production, maintenance and disposal of buildings. It is written with the conviction that by focusing on the process of choice, the range of theory and knowledge that is useful to practice becomes explicit, making the link between knowledge and practice, and between understanding and experience. The new edition has been updated throughout with extensive additions to Chapter13: Manufacture and Assembly and to Chapter 15: Sustainability. An entire new section has been added, covering all the main elements of commercial construction. Students will find here explanations of how environments, structural behaviour, production know-how, cost and social concerns such as sustainability can be taken into account in the choice of construction. They will also gain a clear understanding of the construction details and specifications adopted for both housing and commercial buildings in the UK at the beginning of the 21st century. Provides a framework to think through proposed solutions Sets the choice of solution in both time and place, and in the context of sustainability Focuses on key questions: will the proposal fail; and can it be built? Considers a building’s response to loading, environmental conditions and time Looks at the production process as manufacture and assembly Book website at www.wiley.com/go/bryanconstructiontech2e Contains nearly 200 fully referenced, clear line drawings to download for free, as well as suggested learning activities for lecturers to incorporate into their teaching programmes.

This work provides a single text to support the learning process associated with the study of the construction of domestic housing. The text includes a series of learning sessions or modules covering individual components of the topic. Included within the text are a number of review and self assessment tasks to encourage the student to reflect upon the material rather than simply read through it. The material is set out in such a way as to develop understanding as the reader studies in a structured way rather than providing a base of information in a less directed fashion. Other key features text include comparative studies and case studies. Each element is considered with a comparative study at the end of the learning module dealing with that element. The comparative study attempts to summarize in very simple terms the salient features of the alternative options. Case studies are taken from actual building sites, and with the support of a major national housebuilder, these are used to illustrate the concepts and the reality of the construction of modern dwellings.

A Hiker's Guide to Art of the Canadian Rockies is an invitation to look at art in a new way. Hiker and art historian Lisa Christensen takes the art off the gallery wall and presents it in the context of the magnificent locations that inspired its creation. With trail descriptions and history, interwoven with journal accounts of the artists' adventures, you can discover, or re-discover, the Canadian Rockies through their eyes. From Mount Robson to Mount Assiniboine, follow the footsteps of artists such as Walter J. Phillips, Carl Runggius, Illingworth Kerr, Lawren Harris, and Catharine Robb Whyte, who hiked, were inspired by, and painted the magnificent peaks, hidden gem-coloured lakes, and tranquil alpine meadows of some of the world's most magnificent scenery.

The Cambridge Handbooks on Construction Robotics discuss progress in robot systems theory and demonstrate their integration using real systematic applications and projections for offsite as well as onsite building production. The series is intended to give professionals, researchers, lecturers, and students conceptual and technical skills and implementation strategies to manage, research or teach the implementation of advanced automation and robot-technology-based processes in construction. Robot-Oriented Design introduces the design, innovation and management methodologies that are key to the realization and implementation of the advanced concepts and technologies presented in the subsequent volumes. This book describes the efficient deployment of advanced construction and building technology. It is concerned with the coadaptation of construction products, processes, organization and management, and with automated/robotic technology, so that the implementation of modern technology becomes easier and more efficient. It is also concerned with technology and innovation management methodologies and the generation of life cycle-oriented views related to the use of advanced technologies in construction.
