Publisher's description: The surfaces and composition of flooring make a decisive contribution to the perceived atmosphere, quality and appreciation of rooms. At the same time, flooring must be capable of bearing the enormous loads expected of it. Volume 1 of the publication should aid in the construction and the design of flooring. In addition to a fundamental theoretical basis, it offers decision-making tips and background information on various types of flooring and materials as well as how to plan proper structural connections and transitions. Volume 2 focuses on historical developments, with a particular emphasis on flooring as an architectural design element, sustainability concerns and issues often faced during renovations/modernisation. Corresponding case studies of successfully completed projects can serve as inspiration for the reader's own projects.
