Faber & Kell’s 11th edition

Faber & Kell

The first full-colour edition of Faber & Kell’s ‘Heating and air conditioning of buildings’ (the 11th edition) has been completely revised to add new sections and update the rapidly changing view on sustainability, planning and regulation. For over 70 years, Faber & Kell [as it is affectionately known] has been the definitive reference book in its field.

It provides an understanding of the principles of the subject matter in a concise format, illustrating practical information with simple easy-to-use tables and diagrams.

The latest edition has around a thousand pages and has been reorganised for ease of reference.

It includes fully updated chapters on sustainability and renewable energy sources, as well as information on the new UK Building Regulations Parts F and L.

An introduction explains the role of building-services engineers in the construction process and their important contribution to the reduction of carbon emissions from buildings.

The coverage of design calculations, advice on using the latest technologies, building-management system, operation and maintenance makes this an essential reference for all building-services professionals.

The target audience is principally college and university students, graduates and engineers in training. The copyright is owned by AECOM, and all royalties are given to the CIBSE Benevolent Fund
