Managing the Building Design Process explains the designer’s role in the creation of new buildings from the development of the plan through to completion. One key case study is used throughout the book so that the reader can clearly follow the process leading to the creation of a new building.
This new edition expands on the first edition including sections on CAD and sustainability; incorporating updates to legislation and adding new illustrations as well as discussion points and useful references at the end of every chapter.
Gavin Tunstall is an architect and a lecturer in the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment at Nottingham Trent University, UK.
