Using a concise and logical format that explains fundamentals in very simple terms—yet extensively—this book helps readers develop a working knowledge of the design decisions, equipment options, and operations of different building sub-systems. Readers will learn to design, size, and detail the different sub-systems installations, select fixtures and components, and integrate all the building sub-systems with site, building, foundations, structure, materials, and finishes. Organized into four parts, topics include: Lighting chapters cover perceptions, lamps, luminaries, and design examples. Electrical chapters explain the energy form that lights, heats, cools, and powers buildings. Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning chapters show how to calculate heating/cooling costs for home/office, determine the size of air distribution components, and how to consider HVAC options and zoning for home/office. Water and plumbing chapters introduces water demand for buildings, plumbing systems for buildings, methods of site waterscape, and plumbing fixtures and components. For architects, constructors, managers, occupants, and owners who wish to refine and improve their understanding of efficiency in building operation.

This book is intended both as a textbook and as a reference book for students and professionals interested in building mechanical and electrical systems. With a complete and practical introduction to the design of mechanical and electrical systems in buildings, the text successfully bridges the gap between architecture, civil engineering technology, and construction management. This edition has two new chapters: Chapter 1 covers topics that are relevant for all the mechanical and electrical systems covered in subsequent chapters. This chapter describes the: basics of energy required to understand mechanical and electrical systems how mechanical and electrical systems affect the design of buildings sustainable design principles basic commissioning economics of building operations tools for evaluating options by economics and quality Chapter 19 is entitled "Architectural Accommodation and Coordination of Mechanical and Electrical Systems." This chapter is written for readers who are involved in planning, design and construction to help them gain an early understanding of: what spaces are required for mechanical and electrical systems how to allocate area where best to locate systems and equipment what construction details are important to make systems work as intended The chapter covers topics that can be problematic if they are not addressed and resolved early in the design.

Construction Details From Architectural Graphic Standards Eighth Edition Edited by James Ambrose A concise reference tool for the professional involved in the production of details for building construction, this abridgement of the classic Architectural Graphic Standards provides indispensable guidance on standardizing detail work, without having to create the needed details from scratch. An ideal "how to" manual for the working draftsperson, this convenient, portable edition covers general planning and design data, sitework, concrete, masonry, metals, wood, doors and windows, finishes, specialties, equipment, furnishings, special construction, energy design, historic preservation, and more. Construction Details also includes extensive references to additional information as well as AGS′s hallmark illustrations. 1991 (0 471–54899–5) 408 pp. Fundamentals of Building Construction Materials And Methods Second Edition Edward Allen "A thoughtful overview of the entire construction industry, from homes to skyscrapers.there′s plenty here for the aspiring tradesperson or anyone else who′s fascinated by the art of building." ––Fine Homebuilding Beginning with the materials of the ancients––wood, stone, and brick––this important work is a guide to the structural systems that have made these and more contemporary building materials the irreplaceable basics of modern architecture. Detailing the structural systems most widely used today––heavy timber framing, wood platform framing, masonry loadbearing wall, structural steel framing, and concrete framing systems––the book describes each system′s historical development, how the major material is obtained and processed, tools and working methods, as well as each system′s relative merits. Designed as a primer to building basics, the book features a list of key terms and concepts, review questions and exercises, as well as hundreds of drawings and photographs, illustrating the materials and methods described. 1990 (0 471–50911–6) 803 pp. Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings Eighth Edition Benjamin Stein and John S. Reynolds "The book is packed with useful information and has been the architect′s standard for fifty years." ––Electrical Engineering and Electronics on the seventh edition More up to date than ever, this reference classic provides valuable insights on the new imperatives for building design today. The Eighth Edition details the impact of computers, data processing, and telecommunications on building system design; the effects of new, stringent energy codes on building systems; and computer calculation techniques as applied to daylighting and electric lighting design. As did earlier editions, the book provides the basic theory and design guidelines for both systems and equipment, in everything from heating and cooling, water and waste, fire and fire protection systems, lighting and electrical wiring, plumbing, elevators and escalators, acoustics, and more. Thoroughly illustrated, the book is a basic primer on making comfort and resource efficiency integral to the design standard. 1991 (0 471–52502–2) 1,664 pp.
