Practical Hand Book for Building Construction

Practical Hand Book for Building Construction book is the result of years of experience & its compilation. Always felt during many years of experience civil works site personnel spend a lot of their time and energy searching various data details for routine work. Engineers & supervisors involved in the construction of buildings often require information urgently in the discharge of work. The basic details and information provided help young engineers in saving time. I would like to apologize for any mistakes left inadvertently and will welcome
comment/suggestion from the readers. This book is the general reference guide for normal building construction work. However for specialized jobs, one must consult experts,
