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.
