Title: Modern methods of house construction
Subtitle: a surveyor's guide

Ref Code: FB11
Authors: K Ross

Abstract1: The term 'modern methods of construction' covers a broad range of construction types, from complete housing systems built in factories through to new site-based technologies. This guide gives surveyors an insight into how to differentiate between houses built using modern methods of construction and those built using more 'traditional' site-based methods. It provides: - An overview of the principal forms of housing constructed by modern methods to demonstrate the fundamental differences between these methods of construction and those expected to be used on a block and brick cavity based building, - Specific examples of the visual clues that can help the surveyor to recognise what form of construction has been used - A checklist to use on site.
