1 Building Construction Drawing

Richard B. Eaton; Introduction By Jonathan David, Normal England, and John Keenan

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Dorset, UK, 2004, 1-873394-71-3 / 9781873394717, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, 19 x 28 Cm 
First published in six parts in the period 1914 to 1921 this volume has now been reprinted to provide a useful sourcebook for architects and other conservation specialists working on traditional buildings. This was one of the first books to include specifications and working drawings of joinery details, drawn on a large scale, which complemented the earlier better known construction ‘pattern books ?of the nineteenth and early twentieth century. The book covers a wide range of details, with particular emphasis on joinery, including windows, doors, staircases, panelling, picture and chair rails, and architraves but also covering brick and tile floors, chimney heads, yard gates, and an example of a roof for a small house. These will be of particular relevance to the maintenance of buildings constructed between 1900 and 1939.

2 Building in Cob, Pise and Stabilized Earth

C. Williams-Ellis with an Introduction By Gordon T. Pearson

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Dorset, UK, 1999, 1-873394-39-X / 9781873394397, Reprint, Hard Cover, Brand New, Brand New, 14.5 Cms x 22.5 Cms 
This fascinating study, first published in 1919 then substantially revised in 1947, was based on experiments undertaken by the author, Clough Williams-Ellis into the use of pis?de terre and other earth based materials. It was written at a time when traditional building resources such as brick and timber were in short supply, and there was a need to consider the potential for using alternative materials in construction. Whilst earth building has not developed significantly in the UK since this book appeared, the recent efforts of the sustainable architecture movement has helped to stimulate an interest in constructing new earthen buildings. This, coupled with an increasing awareness of the importance of conserving and maintaining our existing stock of earth structures, will ensure this work will be of considerable value not just as a historical document but as a practical source of advice and guidance.

Lawrence Weaver’s design reference work appeared in 1909, and is now available from Donhead in this re-printed facsimile edition. It describes and documents many examples of decorative leadwork, which being durable and attractive lends itself in its simplicity to a multitude of forms. Whilst examining in detail the history and workmanship to be found on fonts, statues, urns and vases, the book also includes more modest structures such as pipes, pipeheads and rain-water cisterns. The author also explores the use of lead in roofing, particularly for spires, steeples and domes, and points out that it is one of the most efficient of roofing materials, giving many excellent examples of its use on Sir Christopher Wren’s churches in London. With over 400 illustrations, comprising black and white photographs and drawings of all the different types of lead ornaments and structures, this volume will be of value to craftsmen engaged in leadwork, conservation professionals and all architects and architectural historians with an interest in this field.

4 Gauged Brickwork: A Technical Handbook

Gerard Lynch

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Dorset, UK, 2006, 1873394756 / 9781873394755, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
Gauged brickwork is a term used to describe the superior finish required in the details of an important brickwork elevation, such as moulded reveals, arches, string courses and other forms of ornamentation. This is achieved through shaping the individual bricks to produce a high degree of regularity, accurate dimensions and extreme fineness in the joints. This practical handbook combines simple diagrams and photographs to describe each stage of the process, from rubbing, cutting and shaping the bricks to laying and carving them. It emphasizes the importance of this skill in repairing and repointing rubbed and gauged brickwork and the damage that can be done by those unskilled in the craft. The second edition of this standard reference work has been substantially updated with new material, including additional photographs and illustrations to explain the various procedures and applications. It also now offers a fascinating and detailed historical perspective on the development of this important craft. The insights gleaned from this revised edition will be extremely valuable to architects and builders involved in conserving and repairing gauged brickwork, and also to those who are required to commission new decorative work to a high standard. Contents: Introduction v Historical perspective v Manufacture of rubbing bricks v Gauged brickwork v Equipment and tools v Carved gauged brickwork v Main architectural uses v Repair, restoration and maintenance v Tuck pointing v Bibliography v Index.

Developments in the use of paint analysis techniques for researching the painted interiors and exteriors of our most prestigious historic buildings has been extremely important in helping to maintain the integrity of historic structures while they are being conserved. It has given a broader dimension to architectural study, in many cases by showing how particular buildings and rooms were used, and also offering a better appreciation of the nature and constituents of historic paint. Paul Hasluck’s useful little book, first published in 1897, will provide the conservation practitioner with a valuable background to the types of paints employed at the time; how they were mixed and applied as well as the composition and origin of the pigments that were used. Whilst ready mixed paint was available, it was often made up by the painter, so the techniques and constituents required for mixing paint form a useful section in this book, particularly where a colour match for existing paint may be required.

Structural Appraisal of Traditional Buildings, Patrick Robson
8 Structural Appraisal of Traditional Buildings

Patrick Robson

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Hants, UK, 2005, 1873394683 / 9781873394687, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, Brand New, 16.5 Cms x 25 Cms 
This book is a comprehensive guide to the common causes of structural damage. It examines the techniques for collecting evidence including desk study, visual inspection, distortion survey, testing and ground investigation as well as offering advice on managing liability. Before damage to a building can be remedied, the investigator has to discover the cause as well as predict the possible effects of the damage. This book provides an important study of the analytical skills necessary to achieve this. Practitioners in this field have no codes of practice or standards to fall back on ?there are few formulae or theories for the deduction of structural problems ?but there are methods for examining and analysing the damage which will help to produce the correct appraisal. Patrick Robson gives a clear assessment of the techniques involved and provides useful advice on dealing with the problems of diagnosis. He first outlines the principles of investigating safe buildings: how to collect and interpret evidence from observation and knowledge of the common causes of structural damage. This is followed by chapters covering techniques for collecting evidence: desk study, visual inspection, distortion survey, testing and ground investigation. Effective interpretation is of course vital and many practical examples are offered including complex cases where the investigator has inadequate evidence or damage is sudden. Appraisal can benefit from a period of monitoring, so methods for measuring movement and damage progression are also included. Finally the author explains investigators?liability for their work and how to manage that liability. Contents: Introduction Principles: safe structures Causes of damage: superstructure Causes of damage: shrinkage and expansion Causes of damage: deterioration Causes of damage: ground movement The influences of foundations Desk study Visual inspection Distortion survey Testing Ground investigation Interpretation Masonry buildings Timber frame and earth walling Inadequate information Sudden damage Monitoring Managing liability Conclusion Glossary Further reading Index Printed Pages: 224 with numerous b/w illustrations. 008296

10 The Geology of Building Stones

John Allen Howe; Introduction By David Jefferson

Donhead Publishing Ltd, Dorset, UK, 2001, 1-873394-52-7 / 9781873394526, First Edition, Hard Cover, Brand New, Brand New, 14 x 20 Cm 
John Allen Howe’s book, The Geology of Building Stones, written in 1910, was the first major reference work to feature information on the considerable range of building stones which were being used in the UK and which were still being quarried at that time. This important and useful publication, now reprinted by Donhead, offers very detailed information on the appearance and qualities of the various types of stone being used at that time, including granite, sandstones, limestones and other lesser known building stones, specific to certain geographical areas. It also includes a good introduction to the effects of stone decay, in particular the problems of pollution, frost and organic growth in the breakdown of stone. His chapter on testing of stone was very much ahead of its time, since nearly a century later Britain is only now starting to obtain its first standard tests for building stone, in the form of European Standards. This book will be a valuable source of reference for conservators, architects, surveyors, engineers and anyone seeking to identify stone in old or historic buildings.
