A reference on the technical knowledge required for architectural practice. Since the most recent edition was published in 1982, the scope and nature of architectural practice have expanded considerably to include new topics: energy conservation; environmental quality; accessibility; new project delivery mechanisms; and technological improvements in existing areas such as construction, materials, building enclosures and mechanical systems. This edition has been revised and the contents assessed and recreated to meet current and future needs of the profession. Information has been added on remodelling of existing buildings and on integration with allied engineering disciplines.
