Building services refers to the equipment and systems thatcontribute to controlling the internal environment to make it safeand comfortable to occupy. They also support the requirements ofprocesses and business functions within buildings, for examplemanufacturing and assembly operations, medical procedures,warehousing and storage of materials, chemical processing, housinglivestock, plant cultivation, etc. For both people and processes the ability of the buildingservices engineering systems to continually perform properly,reliably, effectively and efficiently is of vital importance to theoperational requirements of a building. Typically the buildingservices installation is worth 30-60% of the total value of acontract, however existing publications on design managementbundles building services engineering up with other disciplines anddoes not recognise its unique features and idiosyncrasies. Building Services Design Management provides authoritativeguidance for building services engineers responsible for the designof services, overseeing the installation, and witnessing thetesting and commissioning of these systems. The design stagerequires technical skills to ensure that the systems are safe,compliant with legislative requirements and good practices, arecost-effective and are coordinated with the needs of the otherdesign and construction team professionals. Coveringeverything from occupant subjectivity and end-user behaviour todesign life maintainability, sequencing and design responsibilitythe book will meet the needs of building services engineeringundergraduates and postgraduates as well as being an ideal handbookfor building services engineers moving into designmanagement.

In the almost sixty years since the publication of the first edition of HVAC Engineer's Handbook, it has become widely known as a highly useful and definitive reference for HVAC engineers and technicians alike, and those working on domestic hot and cold water services, gas supply and steam services. The 11th edition continues in the tradition of previous editions, being easily transportable and therefore an integral part of the HVAC engineer or technician's daily tools. Newly updated data on natural ventilation, ventilation rates, free cooling and night-time cooling, make the 11th edition of the HVAC Engineer's Handbook a vital source of information. Fred Porges has worked in both the manufacturing and process industries, and became a partner in a building services consultancy in 1962. He has held senior positions with design contractors, and his experience covers every building service and type of building from schools to housing, factories to laboratories.

The role and influence of building services engineers is undergoing rapid change and is pivotal to achieving low-carbon buildings. However, textbooks in the field have largely focused on the detailed technicalities of HVAC systems, often with little wider context. This book addresses that need by embracing a contemporary understanding of energy efficiency imperatives, together with a strategic approach to the key design issues impacting upon carbon performance, in a concise manner. The key conceptual design issues for planning the principal systems that influence energy efficiency are examined in detail. In addition, the following issues are addressed in turn: Background issues for sustainability and the design process Developing a strategic approach to energy-efficient design How to undertake load assessments System comparison and selection Space planning for services Post-occupancy evaluation of completed building services In order to deliver sustainable buildings, a new perspective is needed amongst building and services engineering designers, from the outset of the conceptual design stage and throughout the whole design process. In this book, students and practitioners alike will find the ideal introduction to this new approach.

The combined challenges of health, comfort, climate change and energy security cross the boundaries of traditional building disciplines. This authoritative collection, focusing mostly on energy and ventilation, provides the current and next generation of building engineering professionals with what they need to work closely with many disciplines to meet these challenges. A Handbook of Sustainable Building Engineering covers: how to design, engineer and monitor a building in a manner that minimises the emissions of greenhouse gases; how to adapt the environment, fabric and services of existing and new buildings to climate change; how to improve the environment in and around buildings to provide better health, comfort, security and productivity; and provides crucial expertise on monitoring the performance of buildings once they are occupied. The authors explain the principles behind built environment engineering, and offer practical guidance through international case studies.

An effective strategic framework for successful face-to-faceselling for financial services industry professionals Times are very tough for people who sell professional services andSelling Professional and Financial Services Handbook offersa new solution proven in practice. The book describes methodsthe authors have used and taught since the 1990s, most recently ata major consulting firm, where they led a Global BusinessDevelopment team to revenue gains of 500% over six years — ina period that included the recession of 2008-10. The solution is not any new twist on face-to-face sellingtechniques or the art of persuasion. It’s a strategicapproach built around a simple fact: the markets are tightbut far from static. Even with lean budgets, client companies mustrespond to urgent changes and emerging threats in their industries.Thus they will buy services from the sellers who can help themdetect, understand, and cope with what’s coming theirway. This handbook outlines a systematic way of becoming such avalued resource. Readers learn to scan the horizon for earlysigns of “rock-ripple events.” Major changes in thebusiness world often spring from new developments that are littlenoted or heeded, at first, by the client companies soon to beaffected by them. But like a rock dropped in a pond, theseevents set off ripples that sweep through entire industry sectors,creating must-have service needs. The book is written for everyone who sells, or is responsiblefor selling, professional services. This includes but is notlimited to: law firms, consulting firms, finance industry, publicrelations, engineering, and architectural services. Readers who can benefit from the dynamic approach hold avariety of positions. They include: Attorneys, consultants and other practitioners who must selltheir services as well as execute. CEOs, equity partners, practice-area leaders, functional anddivisional leaders Private Equity or Venture Capital executives Sales or business-development professionals, from entry levelto senior level Sales and marketing managers But the book is for sellers in every category who need anew and better approach to selling. Many, even the mostskilled, simply have not adjusted to the new normal oftoday’s economy. They persist with old strategies that cannotbe as productive as they once were, such as pursuing one-offopportunities (which are too few and too hard to win in lean times)or old-style “relationship selling” (which gains littleif any traction). Selling Professional and FinancialServices Handbook gives all such readers a new strategicframework within which to apply their face-to-face sellingskills. It is an approach that puts them in position to win— so they can sell from ahead of the game, instead ofstruggling to keep up with it.
