The revised work "Components" has been divided into two volumes, "Internal" and "External". Topics covered in this volume include: component design, joinery, demountable partitions, doors, suspended ceilings, ironmongery, raised floors, stairs and balustrades. Both books take a practical approach through use of case studies and encourage the evaluation of alternative methods of putting components together. The content interconnects logically with the theoretical aspects explored in other titles in the series eg "Materials" and "Finishes". Up-to-date references to specialist suppliers, British Standards and the National Building Regulations are provided. The books are aimed at BTEC HNC/D building and civil engineering studies, building services engineering and at degree courses in building and architecture. They are also suitable for BTEC NC/D building studies and construction.
