There continues to be a blending of civil engineering and building courses and practioner activities, and the emergence of the Association of Building Engineers is evidence of this overlap. However, while there are many texts on individual subjects related to surveying and engineering, there is no book that brings the key subjects together in a holistic manner. This new book brings together a key range of topics, including health and safety, building control, building appraisal and management, fire safety, construction management and sustainability to provide a practical handbook that will appeal both to the advance student and to the practitioner needing a quick, practical overview of each topic. Support material in the form of case study examples and self-assessment exercises for students will be available on an associated website. The book is supported by the Association of Building Engineers.
