Re: high-rise evaluation

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello, Steve,

You may want to take a look at this book,

"Facility Inspection Field Manual" by Bernard T. Lewis & Richard P. Payant, published by McGraw-Hill, 2000. It is available on Amazon.

It covers structural, mechanical, and electrical, though It does not address high-rises in particular. The detailed check lists for each discipline may be helpful for your project.
