Construction is a multibillion dollar industry in the United States, yet building research is highly fragmented. This new book is a complete compilation of building research institutions. It contains profiles of the institutions and gives their addresses and phone numbers, the mission and focus of their research, their distinctive attributes, and their publications. A comprehensive index identifies all institutions conducting research on specific topics.
