This book introduces a visual approach to communication and problem solving in the construction industry. From two- and three-dimensional hand drawings to sophisticated computer-generated drawings, this text covers all major methods of construction graphics as tools of communication. The underlying premise is that such drawings give construction professionals the ability to quickly and easily communicate complex concepts to a variety of team members. In addition, redundancies and misunderstandings can be avoided when everyone sees the same information. Key features include: Excellent illustrations show how a visual approach can be used to analyze problems, visualize solutions, exchange ideas, and transform rough concepts into usable field instructions. Use of an example construction project to apply the concepts in a real-world setting. Discussion of the interaction necessary to define and solve specific problems that have no obvious solution or predetermined standard method of procedure.Fukai, Dennis is the author of 'Graphic Communications in Construction', published 2001 under ISBN 9780130605528 and ISBN 0130605522.
