The classic architectural data resource for all building types, now up to date for a new century, with 1500 illustrations
This updated and revised Time-Saver Standards for Building Types is a "first reference" and primary source of guidance for design and material selection. It lists in easily accessible format the key criteria that every architect and builder must consider in designing, specifying, and constructing buildings--data needed to prepare preliminary designs, execute programming requirements, and analyze the functions and uses of any building. This volume is the only comprehensive reference covering all building types.
The Fourth Edition features key data on topical issues such as rehabilitation, change-of-use, preservation, accessibility, and energy conservation and other environmental concerns. A new graphic design with new illustrations makes this source more helpful than ever to use.
Time-Saver Standards for Building Types provides a comprehensive overview of a range of building structures. An invaluable guide for review of technical data, it is equally appropriate for use in continuing education courses, in preparation for professional licensing exams, and in schools of architecture.
