The only product selection guide you'll ever need!
Select the best products, systems, and components for any building project, in compliance with codes and regulations! Whether you're an architect or builder, you'll find top-flight guidance in Time-Saver Standards for Building Materials and Systems. The experts assembled by Editor-in-Chief Donald Watson provide easy-to-understand guidance on how various materials function. Using clear, explicit illustrations and short,bulleted comparison points rather than lengthy text, they explore with you key issues in selecting products and give you valuable information for a full range of product types. Information is organized by CSI MasterFormat, the product specification system most commonly used in construction and in the Sweet's catalogs. It's also cross-referenced to the UniFormat system, which indexes products by the sequence of assembly in design and construction, a real advantage in preliminary design and cost estimating.

From the Back Cover:

The architect’s quick reference and comprehensive guide to design and specification of building materials and systems.
Time-Saver Standards for Building Materials and Systems: Design Criteria and Selection Data.
This volume, the newest volume in the Time-Saver Standards Series, offers easily referenced and detailed technical guidelines for architects and builders to design and select any material, product or system for any building construction project.
This new volume updates and extends the technical data sheets prepared over the past twenty years for Sweet’s Catalog File Selection Data. In cooperation with SWEET’S Catalog File, Time-Saver Standards for Building Materials and Systems serves as an essential overview of key criteria required to evaluate and select building materials, components and systems. In its new and updated format, the book is a “first reference” and primary source of guidance for design and material selection. It lists in easily accessible format the key design criteria that every architect and builder must consider in designing, specifying and constructing buildings.
Topics are arranged to conform to the Uniformat Classification System, the widely adopted industry indexing system that “builds” technical information in the same sequence and logical order that a building is built, from foundation, to structure, to enclosure, to interiors, to service systems. This classification system has been adopted by architects and other professional societies for design and preliminary cost estimating because it conforms to the way that a building is built and a designer logically thinks about a building.
Time-Saver Standards for Building Materials and Systems provides a comprehensive overview of all building-related principles, materials and systems. It is therefore an invaluable guide for review of technical data, appropriate for continuing education courses, preparation for professional licensing exams, and use in schools of architecture, continuing education courses, preparation for professional licensing exams, and use in schools of architecture.
800 pages of illustrated data sheets, updated and extended with new topic listings.400 tables and checklist summaries, making it possible to quickly reference a broad range of selection data and criteria.
