This compelling resource, which was first published in 1993, was the first book on facility programming to design parameters and specifications over a broad range of project types. The book’s practical, how-to approach is exceedingly beneficial to professionals and students involved with a wide variety of building types – from corporate facilities, to parks, day care centres, health centres, and correctional facilities. It also covers the fine points of working with clients.

The contributors provide real-world case studies, endowing the reader with the tools necessary to reap a deeper understanding and a more critical assessment of the major programming approaches today. Professional Practice in Facility Programming is a uniquely current, self-contained resource that will prove invaluable to a wide cross-section of practitioners and students.
