Overview

This book provides an in-depth view of the mechanical and electrical systems in construction, followed by a step-by-step approach to the design of each system. Intended to provide an introduction to building mechanical and electrical design concepts and principles, this major revision is written for all those involved in the construction industry.

Elementary engineering concepts and design principles are introduced in a straightforward manner and presented on an elementary mathematics level; requiring students to have a working knowledge of algebra. This book addresses the growing complexity of design standards and regulations and rapid changes in new building technologies, which in turn is expanding the role of the architectural and engineering technician.

For those interested in the design of building electrical, lighting, plumbing, HVAC, fire protection, and telecommunications systems.
