Autore
David E. Watkins IEng, FCIPHE, FSoPHE, MASHRAE, AffCIBSE, MIfL RP, is a highly experienced public health engineer with extensive knowledge of both UK and overseas public health and mechanical pipework services engineering. He has worked on numerous projects in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and the Americas, including a period of secondment to BAA s design team for Heathrow Terminal 5. David is currently working as an independent consulting engineer and lectures on engineering services at various colleges and institutions.
Note Editore
Water based heating systems are efficient, flexible, versatile andoffer many advantages over other heating systems. These advantages(fast response, good controllability, efficient zonal heating andlargely silent operation) all require that initial design,installation, commissioning and maintenance be carried out to ahigh standard by competent engineers.

Heating Services in Buildings provides the reader with adetailed and thorough understanding of the principles and elementsof heating buildings using modern water based heating systems. Akey theme of the book is that there is little difference, in theapproach to the design and engineering, between domestic andcommercial installations. The author s detailed but highlypractical approach to the subject ensures there is sufficientinformation for students from both a craft background and thosewith more academic backgrounds to understand the material. Thisapproach is complemented by straightforward, easy–to–usediagrams.

Heating Services in Buildings supports a range ofeducational courses, including degree level building servicesengineering; NVQ Level 4 Higher Professional Diploma in BuildingServices Engineering; City & Guilds supplementary heatingcourse and the Heating Design and Installation Course accredited bythe European Registration Scheme (ERS).

The book s companion websitewww.wiley.com/go/watkins offers invaluable resources forpractitioners, lecturers, students and community activists withgenerously illustrated sets of PowerPoint slides to accompany eachchapter.
