A teaching tool and reference with an emphasis on developing a solid foundation in construction theory along with the useful tools that have direct field application. Considerably revised from the 1987 edition to account for new federal rules, new materials, and the reshaping of the practice by computers. Adds chapters on construction documents and site layout and control. Well illustrated in black and white. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
