Construction quality: do it right or pay the price By George Frank, Pearson, London, 2011. ISBN 9780132171519, £13.99 (pb)
Publisher’s description: This book addresses the lapse in professional ethics currently undermining segments of the construction industry. Starting with what is expected of any professional in the industry, the authors take readers through the various phases of the industry, reviewing concerns, what’s expected, what’s being done to discover the problems, and how many of these problems are being litigated. Drawing on the authors’ real experience in the construction industry, this text prepares students to take a leadership role in improving the quality of craftsmanship in their chosen field—and not becoming a part of the problem.
