MATERIALS AND METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION

MATERIALS AND METHODS OF CONSTRUCTION                                                            
               An architect should be conversant with the locally available materials of construction and at the same time,he should also study the skill of local labour with respect to the prevailing methods of construction in the locality.The main purpose of considering the main facts is to achieve soundness and economy in the construction.
             Depending upon the number of floor and loads to be carried.the structure can be designed as a load structure or a framed structure.The materials of constructions for walls,roof,floors,pavings,doors windows,etc.should be decided by keeping in mind their availability,suitability,purchase prices, applicability, etc.
