The latest books not to miss out on

All* of our books published in 2020 and beyond are part of the January sale. We recommend you check out our guides on the increasingly popular, BIM — Building Information Modelling. Our expert on BIM, Peter Barnes, provides clear explanations of core concepts, and answers many of the common questions asked about it in BIM in Principle and in Practice, Third edition. Then he sums up the vast possibilities for Project Managers adopting BIM in their projects.

Pick up a copy of BIM for Project Managers: Digital construction management to learn how cutting-edge BIM related technologies can facilitate the successful management of construction and infrastructure projects.

Written by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), Civil Engineering Procedure, which has recently published in an updated eighth edition, is one of the best-known definitive references for civil engineers and is also part of our January sale.

This book provides essential coverage of the stages of work for a project from first consideration through to completion of construction.

Also don’t forget to add the ICE Professional Development titles to your personal home library. “The three books are absolutely vital to the aspiring civil engineering professional. They tell it as it is, cutting through the myths and rumours associated with the process of achieving the status of a professional Civil Engineer”, recommends Chris Bennion, director at Chris Bennion Consultancy. Whether you are just starting out or are guiding others on a path to a fulfilling career in civil engineering, the ICE’s Professional Development set will help you on the way.

What other titles can I find in the sale?

400+ print books* on ICE Bookshop are part of our January sale so this is a great chance to check out popular titles which you might have missed.

For example, the Third edition of ICE Specification for Piling and Embedded Retaining Walls is the UK’s pre-eminent technical specification for piling and embedded walling works, either on land or near to shore. “This is one of the most popular of ICE’s specifications and is supported by the Federation of Piling Specialists”, says Colin Rawlings from HS2.

An established, renowned and a vital source, The Shell Bitumen Handbook, Sixth edition covers the manufacturing, handling and main engineering properties and specifications of both bitumen and asphalt technology, examining how they are designed, manufactured, tested and used.
