THE DEFINITIVE GUIDE TO THE DESIGN OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONTROL SYSTEMS
With over 2,200 drawings and photographs—more than 300 of them new to this edition—Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings covers basic theory, preliminary building design guidelines, and detailed design procedures for buildings of all sizes, and also provides information on the latest technologies, emerging design trends, and updated codes. In addition, the companion web site includes over 30 Interactive Animations, new case studies, a test bank in Respondus, and Instructor’s Manual.
For more than 75 years, this classic text has been the industry standard teaching and practice reference for building environmental control systems. Authored by two leading green design educators, this instructive reference provides the most current information on low-energy architecture, including:
- Context, comfort, and environmental resources
- Indoor air quality and thermal control
- Illumination, acoustics, and electricity
- Fire protection, signal systems, and transportation
This completely updated and expanded Twelfth Edition continues to help prepare generations of students for their careers in architecture, architectural engineering, and construction management, and to supply professionals with in-depth information to assist them with their decision making in practice.
