About this book
This Handbook is not predicated on the exemplary rendering of details but on the best presentation of the information required for the respective purpose – whether at the construction site or the office. The author zeros in on frequent weaknesses in detailing and shows positive examples. He consciously does without modifying copies of actual details and offers examples and comments that can be adjusted to create the optimal effect for the circumstances of any project.
