For each building type, the book gives the basic design requirements and all the principal dimensional data, and succinct guidance on how to use the information and what regulations the designer needs to be aware of.

As well as building types, the Metric Handbook deals with broader aspects of design such as materials, acoustics and lighting, and general design data on human dimensions and space requirements. The Metric Handbook provides an invaluable resource for solving everyday design and planning problems.

Review:

'Faced with the complexity of design as a student, the Metric Handbook gave me the ingredients so that I could work out how, and what size things should be, to make a building – this remains just as relevant and invaluable now in practice. An essential reference for everyone involved in the building industry.' - John Pardey RIBA, Director John Pardey Architects

Praise for the 4th edition

'This book is a great investment as you will use it throughout your career as an architect.'

'I have found that this book is the Bible for all planners, contains so much information that no designer or planner should be without a copy.'

'An essential reference book that should be on the shelf in any design studio.'
