Franco Piva’s 'Manuale delle costruzioni di legno’ is the book on designing and constructing with timber that’s long been needed by engineers choosing to explore the structural possibilities of wood and the use of modern engineered timber products and systems. Covering everything from building physics, structural calculations, BIM, and costing to thermal performance, durability and fire issues, the book also clarifies the tasks and responsibilities of the architect, engineer, construction manager and building user. A wide review of construction details as well as 12 case studies complete the comprehensive guidance available in this book’s almost 400 pages of invaluable information.
