Product Description

Non-traditional houses was first published as a book in 2004 and is now available in a fully searchable pdf format on CD ROM. The CD ROM gives housing professionals, building surveyors, engineers and architects easy access to a vast 1000-page reference library detailing 450 non-traditional house types classified by form of construction:

  • metal framed
  • precast concrete
  • in-situ concrete
  • timber framed.

 

A wealth of information and advice from the leading experts is brought together in this comprehensive and highly illustrated reference, now available in a new digital edition that offers remarkable value for money. For each house type there is an isometric drawing that provides a clear explanation of the construction detail.

Brief notes for surveyors are given for those housing systems investigated by BRE - more detailed information for some of these is given in the structural condition reports on the non-traditional housing CD http://www.brebookshop.com/details.jsp?id=140216 .

Extensive background information and an invaluable search tool are included on the CD ROM. The search tool identifies houses by type, local authority area, construction class, identifying characteristics, or combinations of these. The CD includes six government reports on prefabrication and system building from the Burt Committee in the 1940s, the Moir Committee in 1920, corrosion of steel in steel houses (1951), and prefabrication (1965).
