Decentralized Modular Systems Versus Centralized Systems.
Crossey, R. E.
Building design, planning, and construction programing for modular decentralized mechanical building systems are outlined in terms of costs, performance, expansion and flexibility. Design strategy, approach, and guidelines for implementing such systems for buildings are suggested, with emphasis on mechanical equipment and building element repetition. The technological gaps are overviewed between building design and the construction and building industries. (TG)
