Advanced Stair Stringer Layout Methods Book Review:

If you're interested in advancing your skills as a stair builder or someone who desperately needs to understand the fundamentals of stair stringer layout, then the advanced methods inside this book, we'll take you to the next level. Master Stair Builder - Greg Vanden Berge will share some of the extraordinary fundamentals as well as advanced techniques, few carpenters in the world are familiar with. This is a one-of-a-kind book and was written in a simple and easy to understand format. There are plenty of illustrations and even my wife, who is extremely skeptical about my other books said this was one of the best books I've written so far. This book was written for carpenters, contractors and even sophisticated do-it-yourselfers. I don't recommend this book to anyone who doesn't understand the fundamentals of stair building.

Staircases Book Review:

Staircases can reveal much about the individual architect's approach to design, construction and building materials. Despite the ever-widening range of ready-made components on the market, an expertly made staircase aptly fitting the building is still a hallmark of good architecture. In this volume, the current state of technology in stair construction is reviewed, providing a comprehensive overview of the latest production methods useful for the day-to-day work. Following an introductory essay on the development of staircases, the fundamental principles in building stairs are documented, and essential information is provided on the crucial elements of construction and the creative possibilities of the basic materials wood, steel and concrete. The theory is illustrated by a large number of international examples which are extensively documented, thus providing an invaluable source of inspiration for builders and architects. As a practical aid, the book contains a subject index, a glossary, and information on the current regulations and norms.

Staircases - Structural Analysis and Design Book Review:

In recent years both free-standing and geometric staircases have become quite popular. Many variations exist, such as spiral, helical, and elliptical staircases, and combinations of these. A number of researchers have come forward with different concepts in the fields of analytical and numerical design and of experimental methods and assessments. The aim of this book is to cover all these methods and to present them with greater simplicity to practising engineers. Staircases is divided into five chapters: Specifications and basic data on staircases; Structural analysis of staircases – Classical methods; Structural analysis of staircases – Modern methods; Staircases and their analysis – A comparative study; Design analysis and structural detailing. Charts and graphs are included and numerous design examples are given of freestanding and other geometric staircases and of their elements and components. These examples are related to the case studies which were based on staircases that have already been constructed. All examples are checked using various Eurocodes. The book includes bibliographical references and is supported by two appendices, which will be of particular interest to those practising engineers who wish to make a comparative study of the different practices and code requirements used by various countries; detailed drawings are included from the USA, Britain, Europe and Asia. Staircases will serve as a useful text for teachers preparing design syllabi for undergraduate and post graduate courses. Each major section contains a full explanation which allows the book to be used by students and practising engineers, particularly those facing the formidable task of having to design/ detail complicated staircases with unusual boundary conditions. Contractors will also find this book useful in the preparation of construction drawings and manufacturers will be interested in the guidance given.

Stairs Book Review:

Stairs are the most important vertical circulation element. They shape the space and give the entire design a unique character. However, the requirements when planning stairs are high and vary enormously depending on the multitude of building tasks and materials. Practice Stairs orders all stair types by design and construction typologies. In addition, a planning guide explains the various stair parts, building elements, construction types as well as materials. Finally, an example part with especially appealing realised projects invites you to draw inspiration for your own practice.

Carpentry Book Review:

The third Canadian Edition of Vogt/Nauth’s Carpentry is the market-leading Carpentry text in Canada, designed for community college students enrolled in Apprenticeship and Diploma programs. Developed in line with the 2015 National Building Code of Canada, Carpentry provides students with both the theory and industry knowledge required to apprentice and go on to work in the carpentry trade. The core of the carpentry trade as practiced in Canada is covered in four comprehensive sections: Tools and Materials, Rough Carpentry, Exterior Finish, and Interior Finish. Each section features step-by-step procedures for all stages of construction, important safety precautions, tips of the trade, and a look at anticipated future trends in the construction industry. The engaging design and layout is accompanied by a focus on necessary soft skills and features that build necessary critical thinking skills (“What’s Wrong With This Picture” and “Deconstruct This”). All measurements are given in both imperial and metric systems. MindTap helps theory come alive with interactive learning tools, videos and animations for kinesthetic and visual learners while the learning path keeps students on track.
