The leading guide to professional home construction, updated and expanded Fundamentals of Residential Construction is the definitive guide to single family and multifamily home building that details every step of the construction process. From siting and foundations to finishing details, this book provides a complete walk-through of professional home construction. Over 1,200 drawings and photographs animate the textbook, while interactive supplementary online resources help facilitate an understanding of the material. This fourth edition accommodates the latest developments in materials and methods, including new coverage of sustainable building and energy efficiency, multifamily construction, prefabricated building components, and CAD/BIM planning tools in residential construction. Authoritative coverage of wood light-frame construction, building systems, industrialized fabrication, insulating concrete forms, light-gauge steel and masonry construction, multi-family buildings, and more provides a solid foundation in residential construction methods, tools, and processes. Building a home requires a deeply integrated understanding of materials, structures, codes, and management procedures. Because the process involves such a broad array of considerations and challenges, construction professionals must regularly draw on a clear body of knowledge to keep a project running smoothly. This book helps you lay the groundwork of expertise required to successfully complete a residential project. • Learn the advantages and disadvantages of common materials and systems • Understand site preparation, foundations, and framing • Delve into the details of roofing, finishing, and energy efficiency • Understand heating/cooling, plumbing, and electrical options • Examine the latest codes, costs, and management best practices Designing and constructing a home presents a unique project dynamic; people's homes are their sanctuaries, where they make the memories of a lifetime. They must be designed to be lived in, not simply "used." Lifetime costs play a major role in decision-making, materials must be carefully chosen and sourced, and spaces must be structured to be efficient yet enjoyable. Fundamentals of Residential Construction shows you how to bring it all together to turn a project into a family's cherished home.

Beton unterliegt einem Wandel der Anforderungen und entwickelt selbst Innovationskraft mit Auswirkungen auf Gestaltung bis hin zur Baustellenlogistik. Die Entwicklung von hochfesten, ultrahochfesten und selbstverdichtenden Betonen, die gestiegenen Qualit?tsanforderungen und die zu erwartende Knappheit nat?rlicher Gesteinsk?rnungen setzen neue Anforderungsma?st?be an Entwurfskonzepte. Die Anforderungen an die Dauerhaftigkeit von Beton zielen insbesondere auf eine gute Homogenit?t und auf eine relativ hohe Dichte. Dieses Ziel kann nur im Zusammenwirken von Konstruktion, Statik, Herstellung, Transport, F?rderung, Verarbeitung und Nachbehandlung erreicht werden. Die Anforderungen an die Wirtschaftlichkeit von Betontragwerken k?nnen durch Optimierung von Prozessen und Automatisierung in der Baulogistik erf?llt werden - der Bauablauf im Jahr 2017 unterscheidet sich erheblich von Baustellen vor 50 oder gar 100 Jahren. Immer h?here erzielbare Festigkeiten erm?glichen schlankere Bauteile. Auch die Gestaltbarkeit von Tragwerken wird vielseitiger, diese erfordert aber gleichzeitig eine leichte Verarbeitbarkeit. Vor diesem Hintergrund enth?lt der Beton-Kalender 2017 eine Reihe von Beitr?gen ?ber Betonherstellung, aktuelle Produkterweiterungen sowie verschiedene Anwendungen von Spezialbetonen und deren Qualit?tssicherung sowie erstmalig ?ber die bautechnische Anwendung von tragenden Kunststoffbauteilen. Au?erdem wurde der aktuelle Wissensstand ?ber Spannbeton aufgearbeitet. In bew?hrter Weise werden aktuelle europ?ische und nationale Normen in konsolidierten Kurzfassungen fortgef?hrt. Der Beton-Kalender 2017 ist eine besondere Fundgrube f?r Ingenieure in Planungsb?ros und in der Bauindustrie.

Die Welt verstehen, ohne einen Fuß vor die Tür zu setzen Was bleibt nach der „Geschichte von fast allem“ eigentlich noch zu schreiben? Die Geschichte von fast allem anderen, natürlich. Bill Bryson hat sich daher in seinen vier Wänden umgesehen und sich gefragt: Warum leben wir eigentlich, wie wir leben? Warum nutzen wir ausgerechnet Salz und Pfeffer, und weshalb hat unsere Gabel vier Zinken? Aber es bleibt nicht bei Geschichten von Bett, Sofa und Küchenherd. Die Geschichte des Heims ist auch immer eine der großen Entdeckungen und Abenteuer. Ohne die Weltausstellung in London hätte man vermutlich das Wasserklosett nicht so schnell zu schätzen gelernt. Und ohne die großen Entdecker müssten wir wohl ohne Kaffee, Tee oder Kakao auskommen. Bill Bryson zeigt uns unser Heim, wie wir es noch nie gesehen haben. Und wir verstehen ein wenig mehr, warum es so ist, wie es ist.

Across the country, many urban neighborhoods are experiencing dramatic transformations. Parking lots, underused commercial properties, and former industrial sites are being replaced by condos and apartments. But, do such examples add up to a fundamental shift in the geography of residential construction? To answer this question, the author examined residential bldg. permits in the 50 largest metro regions. The goal was to clarify: 1) if there has been a shift toward redevelop.; and 2) in which regions the shift has been most significant. In more than half of the largest metro areas, urban communities have dramatically increased their share of new residential bldg. permits: The central city has more than doubled its share in 15 regions.
