Integrated M/E Design: Building Systems Engineering

Hardback
Taking a multidisciplinary approach, this long-needed, single-source reference, provides a wealth of knowledge, ranging from the basics of building systems to explanations of why systems need to be integrated, and how integration provides a basis for increased reliability and economic growth. The book delves further, exploring environmentally responsible design through the integration of natural site resources with building systems and the impact of modern technology on buildings. Integrated M/E Design examines a wide range of issues at the core of the electronically operated, economically constrained, politically controlled, and environmentally responsible, contemporary business environment.
