“This is an indispensable book which provides a succinct but authoritative reference to “words, phrases and terms” encountered in the construction industry. …many of the entries give a substantial commentary on a variety of matters you always wanted to know about but never got round to finding out.”


“When starting to read law as an undergraduate, the first law book I bought was Wharton’s Law Lexicon, a book I still have and use. On appointment as an Official Referee, I bought the Penguin dictionaries of Building, Civil Engineering Architecture and Electronics. If I had known that this book was then in existence in its first edition, I would have bought that also. It would have been an enormous help to me”

Judge Peter Bowsher QC

“Presented in a non-legal and highly-readable style, this book is a desirable addition to the specialist library and the professional office and as a useful reference book is directed to architects, surveyors and construction professionals in general together with contractors and their staff.”
