Site Planning and Design Handbook 2nd Edition bridges the gap between the traditional methods of site planning and design and the growing awareness of sustainability issues. Meticulously written and heavily illustrated with construction details and graphic standards, this book offers thorough, detailed coverage of site analysis; environmental assessment; grading; design for traffic control; open space design; project management issues, including permitting and quality assurance; historic landscapes; preserving trees; storm water management; materials specifications and standards. The book blends the technical as well as artistic aspects of site design to generate creativity and efficiency in both realms. It provides standards and guidelines that will support a design choice and provide a basis for educating clients and the public.
