Description

'Buildability' demonstrates that projects that go well and leave satisfied clients and contractors are based on thorough planning and design. However, there are many factors to consider in order to achieve a successful outcome. These include the implementation of guidance on fair practice, better management and improved techniques suggested by the Latham and Egan reports, and the application of improved health and safety measures. Also required is a knowledge of practical construction and the incorporation of this knowledge into the project details from the outset.

This excellent book lists simple proposals, put forward by a variety of experienced people, which, if implemented correctly, will help reduce construction problems and cost, and make the work more straightforward and safe.

'Buildability' is a practical guide based on extensive experience of construction projects, and it will be invaluable for all those seeking to improve the efficiency of their practice.
