I have to say that this book is an essential for architects
who are preparing MEP (Mechanical/Electrical/Plumbing)section of the ARE.
The book is divided into basically nine sections.
1. design context
2. thermal comfort
6. fire protection
8. signal equipment
It describes various systems of each section with pretty
Abundance in graphics and diagrams is very helpful.
The book is extremely helpful in understanding where each
kit of parts fit into the overall building systems.
For instance, I heard about AHUs/ cooling towers/ refrigeration
cycle/ boilers/ duct systems/ etc. , but I never knew how
they fit and interconnect to one and another. The book, being
encyclopedic in its contents, really helps to overcome that.
The book also pays particular attention to the "sustainable"
agendas and strategies.
Trying to make sense of your dense graphs.
Trying to find the water and air paths.
You've been there for me, you learning tool.
In the end we have to part.
You must know that It's me not you.
For you are truly a work of art.
The most exciting and boringest book I ever knew.
But seriously if they could just make this an E-book that would be great.
