§As reported by publisher
Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: The general pattern of this book follows the first edition. All the chapters have been updated and the scope has been enlarged by the inclusion of completely new sections. Readers will find valuable material on the maintenance of modern buildings, the rehabilitation and reuse of existing buildings and on the latest Euro legislation.

It is vitally important that all building owners and users should regard the regular, planned maintenance of their buildings as a matter of serious concern, for we cannot afford to allow our buildings, old or new, to decay and become unsightly and
uneconomical through neglect. It is both impractical and undesirable to replace all our older buildings, and therefore essential that they should be kept in good repair.

The specialist contributors to this enlarged second edition emphasise the importance of adequate consideration of maintenance at the design stage as well as the need for properly planned maintenance throughout the life of the building.
