Format: Paperback
The single most useful reference book for construction industry designers.
Contains information on a wide variety of building types and anthropomorphic (body size) data that is invaluable when planning a building.
Split into sections for each building type, the book contains detailed information on the size of typical furniture, machinery, access and space requirements as well as some basic design constraints for all manner of items.
If I need to know what size a playing pitch is, how much room to leave around furniture or even which room should be next to which I turn to this.

Format: Paperback
Throughout my architectural career, spanning more years than I can remember, I have used the Metric Handbook. I have found it to be an essential aid for all the projects I have designed and worked upon and would recommend its purchase to any budding Designer. An essential reference book that should be on the shelf in any design studio.

I was introduced to this book whilst on work experience in an architect's office and it has been by my side ever since. There is not a single bit of technical data that this book has failed to provide me so far as it's written in extreme depth, exploring all aspects of planning, design and production in many builds and scenarios. It's use of and reference to regulations make it an extremely valuable resource as building regs these days are difficult to work with.

It is a must have for any practise or office and is a valuable resource for students studying degrees particularly in building design and the built environment.

Format: Paperback
I didnt have this book at Uni I had Neuferts Architects Data which I found far better. I bought this book because everyone else had it and was very disappointed with the size vs the lack of useful info. Its not that its a bad book its just that Neuferts does it so much better. Anyway either this one or NEuferts is absolutely essential for any architect or architectural student, they are expensive but you really dont have a choice.

This book is definitely for architecture students and professional architects! It will guide you through practises and studio assignments, in terms of designing appropriate sizes in architectural space and metric systems that will solve issues in your design. This book is a great investment as you will use it throughout your career as an architect.

I have found that this book is the Bible for all planners, contains so much information that no Designer - Planner should be without a copy.

Would recommend it to all Engineers.
