Building Services Handbook 9th Edition 2017
Building Services Handbook 9th Edition 2017 originated as Fred Hall’s Essential Building Services and Equipment some 30 years ago. Since then, under its new title, the content has been regularly expanded, updated and revised retaining the original presentation of simple illustrations, easily accessible text, tables and charts, calculations and references for further study. In combination with the Building Construction Handbook this book is an essential reference for the building industry and for all students pursuing building services and construction-related courses.
Building Services Handbook summaries the application of all common elements of building services practice, technique and procedure, to provide an essential information resource for students as well as practitioners working in building services,
building management, and the facilities administration and maintenance sectors of the construction industry.
