The definitive guide to the design of environmental control systems.
For more than half a century, this book has been a fixture in architecture and construction firms the world over. It has also been the primary means by which generations of students have acquired the basic knowledge and skills needed to design environmental control systems.

Encompassing mechanical and electrical systems for buildings of all sizes, it provides design guidelines and detailed design procedures for each topic covered. It also includes information on the latest technologies, new and emerging design trends, and relevant codes and zoning restrictions-and its more than 1,500 superb illustrations, tables, and high-quality photographs provide a quick reference for both students and busy professionals.
Emphasizing sustainability in architecture throughout, this new edition includes expanded coverage of energy conservation and renewable on-site energy resources.
