The book takes the student through all stages of construction and explains in detail the principal phases that the student is expected to understand & know in the new Hi tech and fast changing environment. It will be a good reference book which will enable the student to rapidly adapt to their new environment by helping them understand the basic principles, working practices, descriptions etc which some countries will take for granted.
