Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

The revision of this classic text provides a well-illustrated and logical engineering approach to the principles and building practices used in the construction of commercial buildings. Principles and Practices of Commercial Construction presents an overview of the methods, equipment, and materials used while covering each phase of the construction process in a sequential, chapter-by-chapter format. Progressing from site evaluation and layout to interior and building finishes, this edition includes detailed examples, more than 900 illustrations, and review questions throughout.

 

 

New to this edition:

  • Revised discussion on soil testing methods
  • Expanded information on the topic of volume calculations of excavations
  • A chapter on site services introducing flexible and rigid pavements, storm water control, and a discussion on street lighting
  • The chapter on structural steel frames has been reorganized to better illustrate the fabrication and erection of these frames for buildings
  • An introduction to the “green building” initiative
  • Numerous updated illustrations and photos to reflect current construction practices

Synopsis:

This classic book provides an overview of the methods, equipment, and materials used in the construction of large commercial buildings. It makes an excellent source of general information—complete with diagrams, details, photographs, and worked examples of typical construction calculations such as earth moving calculation, formwork calculations, concrete pressures, and insulation values for building components. Revised content in this new 8th edition includes additional examples and homework problems for a complete review, superior illustrations, added video clips to the ancillary materials, and much, much more!

About the Author

Cameron K. Andres graduated from the University of Manitoba (1966) with a B Sc in Civil Engineering and then worked as a structural design engineer in Western Canada for nine years (1966 to 1975).

 

He taught at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, Calgary Alberta (1975- 2000) in the Civil Engineering Technology Program where he taught courses including strength of materials, structural design, concrete technology, and computer assisted structural analysis.  During this time, he earned a degree diploma (1990) in Adult Education from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta.

 

In 1978 he co-authored the textbook–Masonry: Materials Design Construction, published by Reston Publishing.

 

He began the long association with Prentice Hall in 1986 by doing the third edition of Principles and Practices of Heavy Construction which was the precursor to Principles and Practices of Commercial Construction, 8th Edition.

 Cameron Andres retired from teaching in 2000 and is presently living on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
