Synopsis

Construction Studies Today by Trevor Hickey

Construction Studies Today emphasises design features throughout and also includes pictorial and sectional views of technical details, all reflecting current examination questions. The numerous hand-drawn images in full colour are similar to what students are expected to produce under exam conditions. New construction technologies are explained to give students an up to date grasp of design issues, new materials and construction techniques. Construction Studies Today outlines best practice in the Irish context and the importance of complying with Irish and EU regulations. Topics dealt with include many which have featured in the Leaving Certificate examination in recent years: Heritage and Conservation; Planning; Sustainability; Conservation and Energy; Site Safety; Timber Frame Construction; Sunspaces. The concise and easy to follow text is accompanied by revision questions, many of which have appeared on past examination papers.
