Building Services Design Methodology clearly sets out and defines the building services design process from concept to post-construction phase. By providing a step-by-step methodology for students and practitioners of service engineering, the book will encourage improved efficiency (both in environmental terms and in terms of profit enhancement) through better project management. Generic advice and guidance is set in the current legal and contractual context, ensuring that this will be required reading for professionals. The book's practical style is reinforced by a number of case studies.

'The manner in which it is set out makes it an ideal text book guide for the up and coming student or, even, a young executive, and as such is thoroughly recommended by one with some 50-odd years experience in the construction industry.' James C. Street FASI, ASI Journal April 2001
`Set out in a clear step-by-step style, the book moves from the feasability stage right through to post-construction design feedback.' Building Services Journal January 2001
