Show synopsis 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.
