Intelligent Buildings: An Introduction, Hardback Book

Intelligent Buildings: An Introduction Hardback

Edited by Derek (University of Reading, UK) Clements-Croome

Description

This book introduces the concept of Intelligent Buildings to the wider construction community.

Edited by the Father of Intelligent Buildings, Derek Clements-Croome, the book explains that intelligent buildings should be sustainable, healthy, technologically aware, meet the needs of occupants and business, and should be flexible and adaptable to deal with change.

This means the processes of planning, design, construction, commissioning and facilities management including post-occupancy evaluation are all important.

Buildings comprise many systems devised by many people and yet the relationship between buildings and people can only work satisfactorily if there is an integrated team with a holistic vision.
