Building Materials and Technology in Hong Kong, Hardback Book


This book is a thorough documentation of tectonics in the Hong Kong construction industry.

It looks at how buildings have been designed and built in a high-density city in a subtropical climate.

Written in both Chinese and English, it covers almost all aspects of building materials and technology in Hong Kong with a succinct sequence that follows the construction process of a building project.

The case studies in Chapter 3 brings together sixteen local projects, which embrace a wide range of building types, from single-story buildings to high-rise towers, from private development to public institutional construction, from office to residence, and provide invaluable information on the application of building materials and technology. While it is intended primarily for students in architecture, surveying, and construction, Building Materials and Technology in Hong Kong is an indispensable reference for professionals and practitioners who are dealing with building design and construction.

Those with a general interest in building construction will also find this highly illustrated book an interesting and engaging read.
