this practical guidebook will assist all architects, students, and even laypersons -with understanding the complex systems involved with the design and installation of mechanical systems for buildings; concisely written, with lots of graphics/ illustrations, and general information; an asset to your reference library!

an easy-to-use reference guide, for the practicing architect (or student) who NEEDS to understand the complexities of building systems, without all of the "engineer-speak" we were "taught" at school; invaluable for the design of small projects

GREAT BOOK, a must have for Architect Students and even those in the field. It definitely was well written and easy to understand.

The book was required for my Environmental Systems course, taught by the authors son and the book came in great condition.

loved it very great pruduct!!!
