Time-Saver Standards for Architectural Design Data
Overview: With nearly 100% new contents, this is the first revision in nearly 15 years of the premier single-volume reference to all standard architectural data in the English language. Reformatted according to Construction Specification Institute Masterformat, the industry standard, this completely redesigned volume incorporates a new “decision points” system that links topics to their relevance to each stage of design. This handy feature allows time-saving consolidation of tasks, from programming through schematic design, completing construction documents and administering the contract. Reflecting the significant changes in architectural practice since the last edition, this update of the standard reference in the field features extensive new material on: energy conservation; environmental quay; accessibiy; construction methods; materials; building enclosures; mechanical systems; remodeling existing buildings; integration with engineering. Other important changes include completely new page layouts and all new graphics, modifications to make international applications easier, and full use of metrics.
