The primary focus of this text is to provide a bridge for students between the academic world and the real world. This bridge is built through an understanding of what is law, how law is created, how law affects almost every activity of human conduct, and how legal institutions operate. Intended mainly for architectural and engineering students, but increasingly for those in business schools and law schools, this text features a clear, concise, and jargon-free presentation. It probes beneath the surface of legal rules and uncovers why these rules developed as they did, outlines arguments for and against these rules, and examines how they work in practice. Updated with the most recent developments in the legal aspects of architectural, engineering, and the construction processes, this text is also a valuable reference for practitioners and has been cited in over twenty-five court decisions.

Using a concise and logical format that explains fundamentals in very simple terms—yet extensively—this book helps readers develop a working knowledge of the design decisions, equipment options, and operations of different building sub-systems. Readers will learn to design, size, and detail the different sub-systems installations, select fixtures and components, and integrate all the building sub-systems with site, building, foundations, structure, materials, and finishes. Organized into four parts, topics include: Lighting chapters cover perceptions, lamps, luminaries, and design examples. Electrical chapters explain the energy form that lights, heats, cools, and powers buildings. Heating, ventilating, and air conditioning chapters show how to calculate heating/cooling costs for home/office, determine the size of air distribution components, and how to consider HVAC options and zoning for home/office. Water and plumbing chapters introduces water demand for buildings, plumbing systems for buildings, methods of site waterscape, and plumbing fixtures and components. For architects, constructors, managers, occupants, and owners who wish to refine and improve their understanding of efficiency in building operation.
