This book provides a practical introduction to construction methods and planning which will be invaluable for students, professionals, and contractors' and sub-contractors' staffs. In the first part, the main factors which determine the planning of construction methods--site inspections, the site itself, temporary works, design, cost aspects, and selection of plant and methods--are discussed. In the second part, the application of these tools is presented, covering foundations and basements, in situ and precast concrete structures, steel frames, cladding, internal and external works, waste, method statements, contract planning control, and claims.
