Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Building Type Basics for Hospitality Facilities is a one-stop source for the essential information architects need to fast-start the design process. In this book, leading architects from four major hospitality design firms share their knowledge and expertise on a broad scope of issues that are essential to the design of luxury hotels, resort/theme hotels, convention hotels/conference centers, limited service hotels (motels), and casinos. They address the rising demand for online connectivity and sophisticated video, data, and telephone systems; the international character of hospitality design; the growing need for flexible layouts; the adaptation of buildings created for other purposes to a new use as hotels; renovation guidelines; safety issues; and more. This book provides critical information on the process, potential problems, unique design concerns, and recent trends in hospitality facilities design, along with complete coverage of energy issues and mechanical systems, structural concerns, lighting, internal traffic, security, ADA issues, and much more. This indispensable guide:

* Asks and answers twenty questions that commonly arise in the early phases of a project commission

* Provides project photographs, diagrams, floor plans, sections, and details

* Includes guidelines for luxury, resort/theme, and convention/conference hotels, as well as limited service hotels and casinos

This conveniently organized quick reference is an invaluable guide for busy, dedicated professionals who want to get moving quickly as they embark on a new project. Like every Building Type Basics book, it provides authoritative, up-to-date information instantly and saves countless hours of research. Engineering consultants will also find a wealth of information to help them tackle hospitality commissions of all kinds.
