The definitions are designed to be of use to professionals in architecture, engineering, surveying, building, construction, forestry, mining, and public works. Entries include terms, concepts, names, abbreviations, tools, and techniques common to these disciplines, and virtually all terms and their functions were supplied by working professionals and experts in each field.

More than 30,000 definitions and descriptions, including many that are not covered in other dictionaries

  • Written with the support and assistance of nearly 100 manufacturers, trade associations, government agencies, and specialists
  • All terms arranged alphabetically; many grouped according to logical common topics; thoroughly cross-referenced
