Principles and Practices of Commercial Construction 9e

Principles and Practices of Commercial Construction 9th Edition PDF Download Ebook. Cameron K. Andres P.E. Retired and Ronald C. Smith offer complete and well-rounded approach to modern construction principles and practices. Each chapter, while complementary to other chapters, can be taught on a standalone basis, maximizing instructional flexibility in diverse construction, architecture, and engineering courses.

This text shows how to apply design theory to the final constructed process, and provides crucial working knowledge for all contractors who must effectively manage subcontractors. Progressing from basic through advanced material, it enables students to follow design specifications through a complete project.

Since this text is on the approved reference list for numerous states that require contractors to pass licensing exams, it offers even more value for students who may need to pass these exams later. This edition's enhancements include improved chapter organization; a new introductory chapter; and valuable new coverage of Proctor curves.

Authors provide tables and charts in both standard and metric units. As an example, Chapter 6 deals with the topic of concrete formwork, has updated formwork tables as well as worked examples in both sets of units. Chapter 3, which deals with heavy equipment production capacities, has tables and worked examples in both standard and metric units.

In keeping with the practical aspects of the construction process, conversion from one set of units to another is based on typical construction applications. This is most noticeable in the chapters dealing with wood products, where sizes in standard units are based on nominal dimensions while sizes given in metric are based on actual dimensions.

Students enrolled in programs such as construction technology, architectural technology, and civil engineering technology at the college level as well as individuals in the construction trades will find this book a valuable source of practical information when learning about construction topics. To further enhance the learning process, where possible, photographs and detail drawings have been provided to help illustrate the concepts being discussed.
