Description

P. C. Varghese’s Building Construction, published by Phi Learning, is a companion volume to the author’s book, Building Materials. It explains the fundamentals of building construction practices in an easy-to-understand style. It discusses at length every element of building construction from beginning to the end – from site preparation to provision of services (water supply, drainage and electricity supply among others). Also, the book describes acoustics and maintenance of buildings, which are vital considerations in construction of buildings. This book is mainly designed as an introductory textbook for undergraduate students of civil engineering and for those pursuing diploma courses in civil engineering and architecture. It is useful for practicing engineers as well. The salient features of the book include the following: separate appendix included to discuss earthquake-resistant design of buildings, review questions provided at the end of each chapter enable the readers recapitulate the topics, the references to IS codes and standards make the text suitable for further study and field use, and because of the lecture-based presentation of the subject, the text will be of considerable benefit of the young teachers for their classroom lectures.

Good Book.

This is a good book. The author presents the subject in a simple language. Even a layman can comprehend what is given in this book. The drawback of this book is that diagrams at many places are not clear. Also, there aren't detailed stuff in it. You can use this book as a quick handy reference but not as a complete detailed textbook. Perhaps we can expect improvements and additions in the forthcoming editions. Anyways, Kudos to the Dr. P.C. Varghese for bringing out a nice book!

Build your house with more confidence

I bought this to get some knowledge before I contract out to build my home. And it proved to be a gem of inside information not available to the common man. Although, it touches upon technical stuff, explanation is clear and simple enough to be understood by a civilian. I would recommend this for every home builder.

Very poor

Totally disappointing. Not helpful for building construction. Some general type of topics are discussed without going into depth. There are questions at the end of the chapters. This book is may be for first year students. But I doubt it's usefulness.
