This handbook covers the needs of architects, building surveyors, civil engineers, interior and industrial designers, engineers, building product manufacturers, and far beyond. It contains the necessary details for planning building projects of all kinds, including offices, industrial buildings, public buildings, and housing, and for specific buildings ranging from indoor and outdoor athletic structures to warehouses. Included are basic metric data of an anthropometric nature for internal and external circulation and environmental subjects such as heating, thermal and sound insulation, and condensation, as well as structural design. Also included are unit dimensions for buildings, spaces, occupations and activities; dimensional sketches; terms employed in engineering services, structural design and loading; complete conversion factors, tables, and bibliography. At this time, when entry into the entire realm of metrics by the United States is imminent, implementation of this method by the architectural and manufacturing communities is mandatory, the announcement states.
