Publisher's Comments

In working with concrete, project outcome depends on the quality of workmanship, writes Nolan (contractor; author, curriculum for the trade and technical education programs, New York Department of Education). Following information on the types of Portland cements and selecting and working with versatile cement materials, he discusses phases from site planning (e.g., getting permits) to estimating quantities for projects including slab foundations, driveways, steps, and walls. The guide includes tips, checklists, diagrams, OHSU standards for concrete and masonry construction, a glossary, and conversion tables. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
