Authors are happy to present the revised edition of the book “Construction and Foundation Engineering”. The book has been completely revised. New Chapters on “Recent Developments in Building Construction” and “Sustainable of Green Building-Planning, Design and Construction” have been included. Several numerical problems from GATE, Engineering Services, and etc. examinations have been added. We hope that the new edition of the book will be handy and more useful to B.E., M.E, students of Civil Engineering and Architecture besides practising field engineers.
