Learn the Tips, Become One of Those Who Know Building Construction and Architectural Practice, and Thrive! For architectural practice and building design and construction industry, there are two kinds of people: those who know, and those who don't. The tips of building design and construction and project management have been undercover-until now. Most of the existing books on building construction and architectural practice are too expensive, too complicated, and too long to be practical and helpful. This book simplifies the process to make it easier to understand and uncovers the tips of building design and construction and project management. It sets up a solid foundation and fundamental framework for this field. It covers every aspect of building construction and architectural practice in plain and concise language and introduces it to all people.

It is for ordinary people and aspiring young architects as well as seasoned professionals in the construction industry. For ordinary people, it uncovers the tips of building construction; for aspiring architects, it works as a construction industry survival guide and a guidebook to shorten the process in mastering architectural practice and climbing up the professional ladder; for seasoned architects, it has many checklists to refresh their memory. It is an indispensable reference book for ordinary people, architectural students, interns, drafters, designers, seasoned architects, engineers, construction administrators, superintendents, construction managers, contractors, and developers. You will learn: 1. How to develop your business and work with your client. 2. The entire process of building design and construction, including programming, entitlement, schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding, and construction administration. 3.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Useful Collection of Tips and Guidelines 1. Februar 2010
Von M. Kilkelly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
This book is a collection of useful information gathered over the course of a career. It provides a briefing for young professionals on what to expect and look out for as they start working. As such, it provides some valuable insights into the mechanics of the practice of architecture. I found the design development and construction document checklists to be particularly valuable for navigating some of the trickier aspects of the design and documentation process. Given the recent attention on the value of checklists in managing complex tasks topics, this book seems particularly timely. That said, the book seemed to focus on one particular building type (retail) in one state (California) so a lot of the information and time lines are specific to that type of work in that region. Also, the book would have benefited from more diagrams and visual aids. Architects think visually and can better process information when presented in a visual format. Finally, one complaint I had was that some of the information seemed rather dated. In particular, there was a reference to using sticky back paper and while the author discussed the use of AutoCAD, there was no mention of Building Information Modeling or other current design tools that new professionals might encounter. All in all, Architectural Practice Simplified is a useful collection of tips and guidelines for both new and seasoned professionals.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Practical Guide 23. Februar 2010
Von Yingchun Lu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
It provides not only a transition from school to office, but it is also a complete and helpful checklist for day to day architectural practice. It is easy to understand, remember, and apply. Through it, you can understand how a project can be easily run. I found that much of the experience I gained from working in an architectural firm for a number of years is summarized and concisely presented here. Very practical, highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Gang Chen hits it on the spot! 2. Februar 2010
Von Prashanth K. Mahakali - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
In a world of books that contain the words Architectural Practice, Gang Chen's book stands apart. They say the time it takes for a person to decide if a technical book is good or not is a few minutes. Go to any page of this book and you will find something useful. When I made the transition from school to a full time job at an Architectural firm, every day was a nightmare since I would find a hundred things that I didnt know. I wish I had this book at that point. This is a must read and must have for someone making this transition from education to real world practice. Architecture is not just about design but all also the numerous other processes which make it a whole. "Architectural Practice Simplified" makes you aware of those processes which you were not taught at school.

I could write a long essay about why you should buy this book, or I can summarize it one sentence. True to its title, this book does simplify the practice of Architecture into its most simple blocks! Architectural Practice Simplified: A Survival Guide and Checklists for Building Construction and Site Improvements as well as Tips on Architecture, Building Design, Construction and Project Management

5.0 von 5 Sternen Mother of all Handybooks 25. Januar 2011
Von swankysenor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
An excellent "handybook," Building Construction by Gang Chen. It is probably the only book that can be kept as a guide by both, a student and a practicing professional. It not only talks of codes and standards but also makes an attempt to simply the Architecture profession for the students and the fresh graduates. It subtly hints and prepares you for the jump from academic Architecture to professional practice.

Project Management, Codes, Logs, Forms, Checklists, Standards, Spec writing tips, punch lists, types of bids and every possible detail you can think of from Project inception to Design Development and from Bidding to completion.

Language is simple, well illustrated and easy to understand which I have always found with Gang Chen's material. I am currently using it for my ARE and find it quite helpful. I have also used his LEED books for my exams and have cracked them with ease. A must-have and mother of all handybooks.
