Description

Foundations affect how the main structure of a building behaves and can be a major factor in determining whether or not it performs satisfactorily in the long term. Decisions about foundations for low rise buildings are often made by people who have only limited understanding of the engineering of the ground. This book has been written for such people and their professional advisors, including architects, surveyors, loss adjusters, planners, insurance underwriters and property developers.

BRE has published a number guidance books over a number of years on various aspects of foundations for low rise buildings. Geotechnics For Building Professionals brings together this guidance into a single unified format and approach, plus gives an overview of ground behaviour and geotechnics focusing on shallow foundations for low rise buildings.
