We are pleased to be offering NZMP 4212 Glossary of building terminology in iBook format from iTunes. The book is available for purchase through iBooks on your Mac or iPad, and iTunes on your computer/PC.
For many years NZMP 4212 Glossary of building terminology has served as a reference book for those working in the building industry as well as for students in either trade or professional training. The document was last revised in 1998 after the introduction of the Building Act 1991 to incorporate the acceptance of new building methods and materials as well as revisions over the years to the Wiring rules or NZS 3000 Electrical installations.
The driver for this 2014 edition is to provide the building glossary in an additional electronic publication format. The content of the glossary has not been revised extensively since the 1998 edition as the aim was to release an edition in another format that could be used alongside hard copies in different learning environments. Nevertheless, whilst the content is largely unchanged, users of this edition can highlight text, bookmark important pages, jump between recently viewed pages, add notes, and create quick reference cards. Terms continue to be presented in alphabetical order and offer simple descriptions to introduce their meaning. It is expected that those interested will still study other references to grow their understanding of the terms used in the building sector.
