RCA: Basic Principles for Construction, 4th Ed
Featuring a full color design with a wide range of photos and figures that reflect today’s construction practices, this Fourth Edition has been updated throughout to ensure that students stay current with industry standards and trends.
Known for its basic, step-by-step approach, RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION ACADEMY: BASIC PRINCIPLES FOR CONSTRUCTION, 4E, is ideal for those beginning a career in the building trades industry. Readers will find thorough, up-to-date coverage of basic skills and important tasks necessary for success in the field, such as work ethics, safety procedures, construction mathematics, communications, print reading, and common tools. Unlike traditional building trade volumes, Huth’s popular book also provides information on construction careers. Created in partnership with the Home Builders Institute (HBI), the workforce development arm of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the Residential Construction Academy Series is the only program based on the National Skill Standards for residential construction.
