Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The first desk reference on technical building systems for interior designers

Building Systems for Interior Designers is the first book to explain technical building systems and engineering issues in a clear and accessible way to interior designers. The technical knowledge and vocabulary presented here allow interior designers to communicate more effectively with architects, engineers, and contractors while collaborating on projects, leading to more accurate solutions for problems related to a broad range of other building considerations with an impact on interior design. Information on sustainable design is integrated throughout the book, making it a relevant tool for current and emerging trends in building design.

Written in a straightforward, nontechnical style that maintains depth and accuracy, this book is the first complete text applicable to interior design courses and provides thorough preparation for the NCIDQ exam. Engaging, clear illustrations support the text, which is accessible to those without a math or physics background.

Topics covered include:
* Heating and air conditioning systems
* Environmental issues
* Water and waste
* Thermal comfort
* HVAC systems
* Electricity
* Lighting
* Security and communications systems
* Fire safety
* Transportation systems

With numerous case examples illustrating how interior designers apply this material in the real world, Building Systems for Interior Designers is a valuable book for students, as well as a practical desktop reference for professionals. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This updated guide to technical building systems for interior designers comes from members of the building design team and has been revised in its second edition to address the concerns of blending the interior designer's functions with a design team's overall building objectives. Technical building systems and engineering systems are explored for interior designers in chapters that discuss how to communicate with architects, engineers, and contractors alike. Any college-level arts collection needs this.
