All interior designers need some understanding of how buildings are constructed. In the second edition of this volume, Roland Ashcroft provides interior designers with construciton information geared specifically to their needs. This second edition has been updated to take into account the 1985 Building Regulations and 1990 amendments. It assumes no prior knowledge of construction procedures making this an ideal text for students in interior design and it is illustrated with three dimensional diagrams and tables for ease of reference. It is aimed at students of interior design and degree courses in architecture, surveying, planning and related disciplines.
