The Design and Construction of Industrial Buildings

£60.00

Product description

London Technical Journals Ltd 1917. Hardback with blue boards and white spine, no jacket. Cover is worn around the edges with some small tears and discoloured areas, spine looks dirty and has a small sticker attached, foxing to pages and page edges, pages and binding otherwise good, overall good condition.

This is a handbook for the standardized construction of industrial buildings. The author, Moritz Kahn, was involved in the setting up of the Gosproekstroi in Soviet Russia during the 1930s, a body concerned with the State planning of building construction. He commented: "all factory buildings for any one type of construction can be built on standardized principles. The result will be a great saving in time and in cost in the preparation of plans and the cost of buildings."

This work contains sections addressing aspects of factory and industrial construction, including planning, methods of construction, heating and lighting, drainage and other relevant topics, and includes a section of black and white photographs at the back showing factories and factory architecture of various kinds.
