Preface of Building Construction Handbook, Eighth Edition book:
This edition retains the predominantly illustrative format of earlier editions, presenting the principles of building construction with comprehensive guidance to procedures with numerous examples of formulated and empirical design. Summary notes are supplemented with references to further reading where appropriate. 

The content applies to both current and established UK construction practice. This includes the building and maintenance of housing and other low-rise structures and the more advanced techniques applied to medium and high-rise commercial and large industrial buildings. 

Many examples from previous editions are kept as important references and benchmarks for newer applications. These have evolved in response to material developments and in consideration for environmental issues, not least with regard to energy conservation measures and sustainable building. The UK’s housing stock of about 25 million dwellings includes approximately 2 million units built in the past decade. Therefore, the aftercare of older buildings is an important part of the construction industry’s economy. In order to represent this important sector of maintenance, refurbishment, renovation and remedial work, many established practices are included in the Handbook. Modern construction processes and associated technology are incorporated in this new edition, however the content is not extensive, nor is it intended to be prescriptive. Building design and subsequent construction techniques are varied and diverse depending on availability of materials and skills. This Handbook provided guidance to achieving these objectives, but sufficient publishing space cannot cover every possibility. Therefore, the reader is encouraged to supplement their study with site observation and practice, with further reading of professional journals, legislative papers and manufacturer’s catalogues.
