Construction Materials Handling and Storage on Site provides advice and guidance for practically controlling materials on construction sites. It addresses the wide variety of standards, misunderstandings and poor techniques that impair the optimum storage and safe handling of construction materials. It shows how to plan where to place materials, create compounds and storage areas to ensure materials are kept in the best possible condition to minimise waste and facilitate easy access and distribution on site. Safe handling procedures, material security and segregation of waste materials on site are also fully covered. The book includes specific advice and information for a wide range of construction materials and products, formatted as data sheets, to ensure easy access to information that will be required regularly.
