This is a comprehensive reference work on architectural design, which has been updated to include new designs, standards, materials and applications, as well as the current American building codes. All chapters begin with a summary of the topic. The new material covered ranges from waste disposal to environmental building design and new building envelope systems. The information on energy and resource conservation has been expanded and there is a new section on building types.
Acceptable. A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (However the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text. Book may be a price cutter or have a remainder mark.
Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, may not include cd-om or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
My original (but older) copy was destroyed by the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. I needed the helpful details because I was beginning a rehab of the family home, and I had no other basic references. It is serving it's purpose quite well.
