About this book


A comparative review of construction techniques relating to low and medium rise buildings, based on five representative European Community countries - Denmark, France, Germany, The Netherlands and Portugal. Professional relationships and the roles of the architect, engineer and surveyor are described, together with contractual procedures as appropriate. Case study examples are discussed under each country and numerous line diagrmas illustrate the different techniques adopted for the construction of foundations, floors, internal and external walls and roofs. Comparative data on other EC countries not examined in detail is included. A textbook and reference source for students of the built environment.
