Collaborative Relationships in Construction: Developing Frameworks and Networks by Hedley Smyth
English | Sep. 2, 2008 | ISBN: 1405180412 | 260 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

The book collects the latest research on both contractual and conceptual collaborative practices in construction. It identifies common problems faced by the industry and draws out practical implications.
Construction projects are increasingly run in ways that undermine the traditional boundary of the firm and sometimes also the definition of the project coalition. This poses challenges for construction firms whose clients demand ever increasing performance improvements as well as those firms who want to improve their strategies for greater collaboration to give themselves competitive advantage.

Refurbishment and Repair in Construction by David K. Doran
English | Aug 5, 2009 | ISBN: 1904445551 | 336 Pages | PDF | 5 MB

Refurbishment and repair accounts for approximately 50 per cent of annual construction turnover. It is therefore essential that practitioners and those students who aspire to work in this sector are equipped with the best tools to do the job. This book has been produced to fill that gap in construction literature. The nature of refurbishment and repair is markedly different from new-build work since it is necessary to work within the restraints of a pre-determind situation.

The Engineering Group of the Geological Society convened a Working Party in 1993 and gave it the objective of presenting an authoritative, comprehensive and contemporary account of the use in construction of rock in larger particulate form, subsequently generally referred to as 'stone'. The membership of the Working Party comprised experts in the origins, investigation, extraction, processing, use, specification, decay, cleaning and repair of stone.The resulting book is a unique, modern introduction to the subject and a source of further reference for architects, civil engineers, geologists, masons, quarry managers, structural engineers, surveyors and those responsible for restoration and maintenance of stone structures. Text boxes explain detail or specialized topics to the interested reader without interupting the main flow of the text. The book is highly illustrated with photographs taken by the authors and diagrams specially drawn for this publication. The book also includes a valuable glossary of terms and compliations of test methods and rock properties.
