Overview

Buildings: Design and Engineering for STEM by Alex Woolf

Did you know that every building has a life cycle? That's what we call the stages from its design, construction, and opening to its use, maintenance, and demolition and disposal at the end of its useful life. This book explains what happens during these stages, such as planning, the sourcing of materials, the construction process, the decisions made by designers and engineers, and refurbishing and recycling.
