Organisations of many kinds, perhaps none more so than those within the construction industry, are increasingly aware of the growing need to reduce the potentially harmful effects of their business upon the environment. Environmental management and environmental management systems are concepts that embrace those aspects of policy, strategy, procedure and practice that form an organisation's response to its environmental situation. This book provides a detailed guide to the concepts and practices involved in the field of construction.

This book is directed primarily towards providing students and practitioners with a basic grounding in the use of computers by quantity surveyors. It is divided into two parts, the first part (Chapters l to 8) dealing with general concepts of information technology, and the latter part (Chapters 9 to 13) dealing with specific quantity surveying issues. Covers a wide range of topics: computer hardware; operational and management implications of computer systems; legal issues; general purpose software such as word processors, spreadsheet systems and micro-computer based data manipulation packages; public information software; development of in-house software; artificial intelligence and expert systems; the use of computers in cost planning, production of bills of quantity, post contract work and project management and computer aided design. The book is extensively referenced.

The application of good acoustic design can seem daunting to designers when trying to understand the often-complex physics of sound control. The ever-increasing number of standards and performance criteria that can be requested on new developments further complicates acoustics for architects. Architectural Acoustics, part of the PocketArchitecture series, provides the fundamental theory and understanding of acoustics and applications of effective detailing for specific building types and conditions in an accessible and clear technical guide. The book provides: a compact and understandable introduction to the fundamentals of building and architectural acoustics definitions of suitable acoustic performance criteria for a wide range of common buildings and room types guidance on specification and detailing of the most suitable construction types in North America and the UK. This book is both, a handy rule of thumb on acoustics for anyone involved in the design or construction of buildings, as well as an essential addition to any architect’s reference library.
