Unlike the majority of construction project management textbooks out there, Management of Construction Projects takes a distinctive approach by setting itself in the context of a single and real-world construction project throughout and also by looking at construction project management from the constructor’s perspective. This project-based learning approach emphasizes the skills, knowledge, and techniques students require to become successful project managers.
Managing the Construction Process: Estimating, Scheduling, and Project Control, Fourth Edition, covers all areas of the Construction Management industry―with a balanced focus on both theory and practicality. Helping students gain a working knowledge of the whole Building Industry, this text provides the technical skills required to manage a construction project from conception through occupancy.
Manual H gives you a one-stop reference on residential and small commercial heat pump systems - basic principles, equipment, installation, operation, applications and system design - with a wealth of step-by-step examples and design calculations
Manual J 8th Edition is the national ANSI recognized standard for producing HVAC equipment sizing loads for single-family detached homes, small multi-unit structures, condominiums, town houses, and manufactured homes. A proper load calculation, performed in accordance with the Manual J 8th Edition procedure, is required by national building codes and most state and local jurisdictions.
MJ8AE, an abridged version of the Eighth Edition of Manual J, provides complete instructions for estimating heat loss and heat gain for residential structures. MJ8AE is sufficient for learning the Manual J procedures and for undertaking hand calculations on a varied number of home applications.
The New Fifth Edition of Manual N® details the load calculation procedure that addresses the advances in the commercial construction industry: new materials, methods of assembly, and operational requirements
Manual P shows you how to use the psychrometric chart to map any type of heating and cooling process, and how to use these maps to calculate heating, cooling, humidification, and loads. Includes sample problems and solutions for sensible heating and sensible cooling processes, humidification and dehumidification processes, room-sensible heat ratio and coil-sensible heat ratio.
Manual Q is your one-stop reference book on the low-pressure, low-velocity systems used in small and mid-size commercial buildings. Manual Q gives you time-saving quick fitting loss tables and a complete set of fitting loss tables compiled from the ASHRAE and SMACNA handbooks.
This manual takes contractors through the design stage to the completion of a successful residential heating and cooling system installation. The whole house concept of Manual RS includes special design elements that match the needs of today's homeowners.
Manual S shows you how to select and size heating and cooling equipment to meet loads for a particular home, which are based on local climate and home construction specifics. Contractors in Miami, Phoenix, and Seattle - all extremely different climates - would never use the same equipment and expect the same results. Manual S provides sizing requirements for 11 types of cooling and heating equipment, as well as in-depth explanations and examples of how to use manufacturer's performance data.
