Description - Illustrated Encyclopedia of Building Services by David Kut
This is an explanatory, highly-illustrated encyclopedia of terms used in the following engineering services in buildings: air conditioning; heating and ventilating; hot and cold water supply; fire-fighting and protection; drainage and sanitation; electrical services. These services absorb an increasing share of the budgets for buildings and may account for as much as half the total cost of sophisticated high technology developments. The building services are of increasing importance to all building design and contracting teams as well as the commissioning, selling and management professionals. This book explains over 3,000 terms (over 100,000 words) and contains over 200 line illustrations drawn by professional technicians. This practical handbook is intended for day to day use as a reference or as a source of enlightenment for anyone associated with the building and construction industry. It also provides comprehensive practical explanations of the many terms listed, providing guidance, examples of use and, in certain cases, cautionary remarks concerning aspects of the applications.
