Updated and expanded, it answers more questions more quickly than any other building design resource anywhere. Pat Guthrie's The Architect's Portable Handbook is already the choice of thousands of architects, contractors, and design professionals who seek solid first-step rules of thumb for building design. Easy to handle and organized in the easy-to-follow CSI Masterformat, which parallels the progress of a typical job, the Handbook offers you quick, accurate, on-the-job guidance on everything from cost estimating to electrical systems. Featuring materials and specifications checklists, design data for major building materials, and details for major components and assemblies for any type of facility, the updated and expanded Second Edition offers: the latest building standards, including the 1997 UBC; updated unit costs for building materials, systems, and construction; a new simplified version of the national model energy codes; many new examples highlighting key techniques and procedures; several new and revised tables and line drawings. The Handbook is broader in scope than competing tools while providing just the right level of detail to help you make sound, on-the-spot design decisions every time. A perfect complement to Guthrie's Cross-Check, which helps ensure error-free working drawings, the Handbook is an indispensable, time-saving companion.About the Author:
