Long Description
Architect's Handbook of Construction DetailingDavid Kent Ballast, Faia, csiSecond EditionReady-to-use information about the most critical building detailsThe Architect's Handbook of Construction Detailing, Second Edition provides architects, interior designers, contractors, students, and others in the construction industry with a convenient source of detailing and specification information on hundreds of commonly used details and materials. Keep the Handbook at your desk to help solve specific problems, as the basis for developing a master detail system, or as a reference for checking existing drawings and specifications.Significantly updated with revisions to nearly all details, the Second Edition focuses on the key areas where you are most likely to encounter problems, such as exterior cladding, roofing, doors, and masonry. Featuring thoroughly redrawn illustrations and the latest industry standard references, the new edition now includes:A thorough profile of each detail: description, detailing considerations, coordination required, material requirements, installation requirements, tolerance coordination, and likely failure pointsDetails revised to reflect new technologies and more stringent energy conservation requirementsNew sections on concrete with insulation, autoclaved aerated concrete, glass fiber-reinforced concrete panels, precast concrete with insulation, multistory wood framing, and moreA keynoting system updated to the new 6-digit MasterFormattm numbering systemsRegardless of how you use this book, you will find it to be a time-saving reference that can minimize errors and improve the technical documentation of your projects.
