Barry’s Advanced Construction of Buildings

In Barry’s Introduction to Construction of Buildings we provided an introductory chapter that set out some of the basic requirements and conditions relevant to all building projects, regardless of size and complexity. Continue reading “Barry’s Advanced Construction of Buildings”


Construction Contracts Law & Management

This book is aimed primarily at students for whom the study of building or civil engineering contracts forms part of a construction-based course. We have had in
mind the syllabus requirements for first degrees in Building, Civil Engineering, Architecture, Quantity Surveying and Building Surveying, as well as those of
postgraduate courses in Construction Management and Project Management. Continue reading “Construction Contracts Law & Management”

Fundamentals Of Construction Estimating

Fundamentals of Construction Estimating is written to provide the reader with the resources necessary to learn how to estimate the construction costs of building proj-
ects making use of modern technology and following the methods employed by successful general contractors. Continue reading “Fundamentals Of Construction Estimating”

Structural Fire Loads

In the design of buildings, loads caused by gravity, wind, and earthquake must be considered by the structural designer. Gravity loads, both dead and live, are always present but somewhat variable and hard to forecast because of lack of knowledge about extremes and are considered to be the most important loads. Continue reading “Structural Fire Loads”

Principles of Highway Engineering & Traffic Analysis

This fifth edition of Principles of Highway Engineering and Traffic Analysis continues the spirit of the previous four editions by again focusing exclusively on highway transportation and providing the depth of coverage necessary to solve the highway-related problems that are most likely to be encountered in engineering practice. Continue reading “Principles of Highway Engineering & Traffic Analysis”

Practicle Guide to Project Planning

This book was born out of a market need that I began noticing when I first started working in project management. Everybody was interested in seeing examples of project documents to discuss and analyze the models and best practices used in the PMI standards, published in the PMBOK Guide. Continue reading “Practicle Guide to Project Planning”
