    • This book explains, in a practical and straightforward way, the fundamental principles needed for understanding noise, its cause and the means of dealing with it. It presents a strategy for optimizing a building`s internal environment in terms of noise and its associated problems, addressing all stages of the process from the motor design to installation.

    Acoustics of Long Spaces: Theory and Design Guidance
    • Author: Jian Kang
    • Publication Date: January 2002
    • Content type: Book
    • + Show Description- Hide Description
    • Acoustics is a major concern in many long spaces, such as road or railway tunnels, underground/railway stations, corridors, concourses and urban streets. The specific problems of such irregularly shaped spaces, ranging from noise pollution in streets and tunnels to poor speech intelligibility of public address systems in railway stations are not dealt with by classic room acoustic theory.

      This state-of-the-art exposition of acoustics of long spaces presents the fundamentals of acoustic theory and calculation formulae for long spaces as well as giving guidelines for practical design.

    • + Show Description- Hide Description
    • David Bennett's latest book focuses on the fusion of innovative architecture and engineering on London Underground's Jubilee Line Extension.

      The book highlights the complexity of the engineering involved and the difficulties of creating architecture in reverse (a building as a hole in the ground with no elevation and with problems of light and entrance).

      Based on interviews with the architects, contractors and engineers involved on the project,each station is introduced in turn highlighting the design conception and constructional issues.

    • Better Places to Work is concerned with those elements of the design and development of workplaces that the planning system can influence. It explores issues around location, the public realm, architecture and linkages. It is based on the principle that well-designed, accessible and pleasant living and working environments are one of the key requirements for creating sustainable communities as set out in The Sustainable Communities Plan Building for the Future.

    • ""This book fills an important gap in construction literature and makes a positive contributon to improving buildability and hence efficiency. I am sure it will benefit its readers and the construction industry generally.""

      Sir Frank Gibb

      Buildability demonstrates that projects that go well and leave satisfied clients and contractors are based on thorough planning and design. However, there are many factors to consider in order to achieve a successful outcome. These include the implementation of guidance on fair practice, better management and improved techniques.

    • + Show Description- Hide Description
    • In order to deliver value, maintain competitiveness and remain profitable, construction professionals need to develop their capabilities for managing innovation and technical change.

      This new book presents a rich historical framework for understanding how to manage contemporary changes. It starts in the Machine Age, showing how a sophisticated set of industries and design processes have evolved to work with new materials, components and systems, culminating in the experiences and skills needed to integrate systems in the Digital Age.

    • + Show Description- Hide Description
    • The purpose of this handbook is to provide advice and guidance on those aspects of planning and design that will enable car parks to perform their function efficiently, economically and at the same time be user friendly.

      The authors do not see car park design as being a finite art but as a compromise, a balancing act between motorist's spatial desires and the practical need to achieve economy of construction and effective use of the site area.

    • + Show Description- Hide Description
    • The Car Park Designers Handbook provides essential guidance on those aspects of planning and design that will enable car parks to function efficiently and economically whilst being user-friendly.

      The new edition is a comprehensive reference tool which distils over 35 years of specialist knowledge and experience in car park design, repair and improvement. Featuring more than 75 scale drawings of circulation layouts, the Car Park Designers Handbook describes, illustrates and evaluates the relative strengths and weaknesses of each layout and explores the practical design of parking elements including stall dimensions, aisle widths, ramp slopes and headroom.

      The authors offer essential advice on how to enhance traffic flow, facilitate circulation and create car parks which are as flexible as possible to fulfil the needs of a wide range of vehicles and users. The book provides updated information on key issues such as security, ventilation, lighting, drainage, signage, fiscal and barrier control. The new edition also includes:

      • Guidance on optimum entry and exit locations that affect layout;
      • Scale drawings that can be used as templates in the layout design process;
      • Photographic examples of successful car parks designed by the authors;
      • An expanded section on ‘Structure’, providing examples of the most common forms of construction;
      • Advantages and disadvantages in the use of automated (robotic) car parks.

      The Car Park Designers Handbook intends to help practising engineers, designers, architects, local authorities, parking consultants and operators to create car parks which not only meet the spatial needs of motorists, but achieve economy of construction, durability of structure and effective use of the site area.
