Adaptable for projects at any stage, the Handbook addresses all types of building systems -- including fire protection suppression and control, fire alarm, emergency communications, smoke control, power, fire doors, commercial cooking operations, and elevators; and identifies tasks to be done within each phase -- from pre-design through design, construction, occupancy, and operation.
You'll learn who should perform each task, the task's deliverables, and key questions that must be answered to progress to the next step so you can document that building systems have been installed correctly and will perform as intended. (Hardbound, 320 pp., 2012)
