Site Establishment Formwork & Framing is designed to complement your on-site learning experiences. It covers what to do with a vacant site, setting out a building on that site, and completion of the framed building with walls, roof and eaves in place. Each chapter deals with the main events involved in the process of taking that vacant site through to the completed building. The text heavily references Australian building standards, codes and guides. The updated coverage in this fourth edition of sustainability, materials, tools and industry benchmarks, coupled with revised end-of-section worksheets and online study tools, makes this the most up-to-date and comprehensive resource in the market. The bestselling Building Skills series addresses the key competencies of the Certificate III in Carpentry.
