An important addition to the "Time-Saver Standards" series, this book offers top-flight guidance for architects and builders who need to select any type of product, system, component, material, or assembly for any job. It provides easy-to-understand guidance on how various materials function, considers key issues in product selection, and offers general information on the full range of product types. It is organized by CSI MasterFormat - the product specification system most commonly used in construction and in the Sweet's catalogs. It is cross-referenced to the UniFormat system, which indexes products by the sequence of assembly in design and construction - a real plus when engaged in preliminary design and cost-estimating.

Time-Saver Standards for Building Materials and Systems: Design Criteria and Selection Data.
This volume, the newest volume in the Time-Saver Standards Series, offers easily referenced and detailed technical guidelines for architects and builders to design and select any material, product or system for any building construction project.
This new volume updates and extends the technical data sheets prepared over the past twenty years for Sweet's Catalog File Selection Data. In cooperation with SWEET'S Catalog File, Time-Saver Standards for Building Materials and Systems serves as an essential overview of key criteria required to evaluate and select building materials, components and systems. In its new and updated format, the book is a 'first reference' and primary source of guidance for design and material selection. It lists in easily accessible format the key design criteria that every architect and builder must consider in designing, specifying and constructing buildings.
Topics are arranged to conform to the Uniformat Classification System, the widely adopted industry indexing system that 'builds' technical information in the same sequence and logical order that a building is built, from foundation, to structure, to enclosure, to interiors, to service systems. This classification system has been adopted by architects and other professional societies for design and preliminary cost estimating because it conforms to the way that a building is built and a designer logically thinks about a building.
Time-Saver Standards for Building Materials and Systems provides a comprehensive overview of all building-related principles, materials and systems. It is therefore an invaluable guide for review of technical data, appropriate for continuing education courses, preparation for professional licensing exams, and use in schools of architecture, continuing education courses, preparation for professional licensing exams, and use in schools of architecture.
800 pages of illustrated data sheets, updated and extended with new topic listings.400 tables and checklist summaries, making it possible to quickly reference a broad range of selection data and criteria.
