Description

This is the first text to view building construction and its systems through the lens of sustainability, providing an integrated approach to the principles of sustainable design as the way a building is created as opposed to an added topic appended to traditional construction information. As a practicing architect and interior designer, Tucker covers ALL systems including construction systems, mechanical systems, electrical and plumbing systems, and interior systems for the first time in a single text. The technical knowledge and vocabulary presented here allow interior designers and architects to communicate more effectively amongst themselves as well as with engineers and contractors while collaborating on projects, leading to more accurate solutions for problems related to a broad range of other building considerations with an impact on interior design.
