About this book

Shortcuts provides an eclectic mix of at-a-glance guides to the minefield of regulations, new materials, and technologies that confront building designers today. Comprising hand-drawn sketches, technical drawings, and punchy articles, each Shortcut takes you right to the heart of a key topic in architecture and construction, presenting a wealth of invaluable information in an accessible and lively way.

Shortcuts: Book 2 explores the issues that affect the way building designers work, with topics grouped into chapters on Energy Conservation; Sustainability; Working Practices; Health and Safety; and Legislation and Guidance. The shortcuts range from zero carbon energy sources to green roofs, and from drawing conventions to contracts and case law. Each Shortcut is a quick, reliable, and incisive clarification of the welter of diverse (and sometimes conflicting) technical guidance that tends to bombard and bamboozle designers.
