"The series is welcome . . . By providing recent buildings as examples, supported with technical information and charts of design criteria, these books attempt to bridge the gap between theory and practice."
Building Type Basics books provide architects with the essentials they need to jump–start the design of a variety of specialized facilities. In each volume, leading national figures address the key questions that shape the early phases of a project commission. The answers to these questions provide instant information in a convenient, easy–to–use format. The result is a valuable, hands–on reference that puts critical information at your fingertips.
Building Type Basics for Justice Facilities provides in–depth information that is essential to initiate designs for a variety of justice facilities, including law enforcement, adult detention, courts, corrections, juvenile and family justice, and multi–occupancy facilities. Filled with project photos, diagrams, floor plans, sections, and details, it combines in–depth coverage of the structural, mechanical, energy, cost information, safety, and security issues that are unique to justice facilities with the nuts–and–bolts design guidelines that will start the project off on the right track and keep it there through completion.
