An important addition to the Time-Saver Standards Series, this book offers top-flight guidance for architects and builders who need to select any type of product, system, component, material, or assembly for any job. Provides easy-to-understand guidance on how various materials function, considers key issues in product selection, and offers general information on the full range of product types. Organized by CSI Master Format--the product specification system most commonly used in construction and in the Sweet's catalogs. Cross-referenced to the UniFormat system, which indexes products by the sequence of assembly in design and construction--a real plus when engaged in preliminary design and cost-estimating.
