Books

CHS acts as a publisher for books on building construction but it has limited funds so all applications from authors have to come with a source of funding. Currently its publications are limited to those connected with events and conferences held by the Society. The society is interested in published guides to sources for construction history and any authors wishing to apply should contact the secretary.

All members receive 25% discount on all publications (contact the secretary).
