It will appeal as a textbook to HND students of building services engineering as well as to undergraduate students of quantity and building surveying, estate management, building, and architecture and related disciplines, all of whom are normally required to take an introductory course in building services In this thoroughly revised new edition, which has been fully updated, both the theoretical and practical content has been expanded. In particular, the chapters covering cold water provision, drainage, heating, mechanical ventilation, air conditioning and electricity installations have been enlarged significantly and many new diagrams added.
