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 an excellent, hands-on reference that puts critical information at your fingertips.
Building Type Basics for Hospitality Facilities provides the essential information needed to initiate designs for luxury hotels, resort/theme hotels, convention hotels and conference centers, limited service hotels (motels), and casinos. Filled with project photographs, diagrams, floor plans, sections, and details, it combines in-depth coverage of the structural, mechanical, lighting, internal traffic, security, and accessibility issues that are unique to hospitality facilities with the nuts-and-bolts design guidelines that will start any project off on the right track and keep it there through completion.
