This text explains the designer's role in the creation of new buildings from development of the plan through to completion. The focus is on ensuring that the adopted design best fits the needs of the client, and putting that design into practice in the most effective manner. This text uses one key design project throughout, so that the reader can follow the process leading to the creation of a new building, with pertinent issues highlighted as they would arise in practice. This second edition of Managing the Building Design Process reflects all the latest changes to the design process. From providing correct provision for the disabled, developing skills in 3D animation and CAD design all the way through to judging the success of your development through 'Post-occupancy evaluation', this new edition is clear, easy to understand and accessible to students in architectural technology, construction, construction management, building and architecture.
Audience: Undergraduate students of architectural technology, architecture, construction management, construction and building.
