Building Drainage - An Integrated Design Guide
|INSIDE:||163 Colour photos and 49 colour diagrams|
Good drainage contributes to the delivery of sustainable, innovative and resilient buildings, and is essential for our health and wellbeing. However, designers and architects can often leave drainage to be implemented by specialists in isolation of other design considerations, resulting in costly changes, rework and repairs, operational discomfort and poor user experiences that could have been avoided.Written for building designers and allied professionals, homeowners and managers as well as the general public, Building Drainage promotes an integrative and collaborative approach. Key principles and components of drainage design are presented in an accessible manner with many UK examples where the underlying information and knowledge can be applied internationally.
- Surface and rainwater drainage
- Water and energy efficiency through wastewater recycling and reuse, and heat recovery
