The Smarter Construction Book

Featuring the latest building products, systems and processes, The Smarter Construction Book is informative and easy to read. With valuable insights into smarter ways to achieve the right balance between aesthetic considerations, sustainability concerns and budget constraints, it also debunks a few traditional construction myths along the way.

This 72-page booklet covers key building elements including roofs, external and internal walls, and openings and clip-ons. It also focuses on the latest waterproofing solutions for balconies, decks and internal wet areas. Detailed comparison charts look at the costs incurred using typical building methods against lightweight materials – with some surprising results.

Also included are a number of industry case studies and testimonials, plus helpful checklists for the design, estimating, purchasing and installation stages of the construction process.
