Download Building Design and Construction Handbook [PDF] - Civil Engineering Book

Civil engineering is a very vast and cosmic knowledge with gigantic fields and disciplines. The theoretical perspective of the field has so many points and groups of information that one can’t keep them in one’s mind for ever and while working on the field there are too much problems and troubles to be faced by engineers and instantaneous solutions to such problems are needed.

In such conditions this handbook is very handy and advantageous it is divided into ten major sections covering all the building and construction problems and techniques from one sort of building material to other.  It also provides one on one techniques and methods which are very handy while supervision in the construction process and doing the accurate management of the team and ensuring the perfect resource allocation and doing the crashing as needed.
This book also provides perfect information for the allied engineering like electrical and mechanical heating and ventilation systems.
