This text shows the reader how to plan and develop a restaurant or foodservice space. Topics covered include concept design, equipment identification and procurement, design principles, space allocation, electricity and energy management, environmental concerns, safety and sanitation, and considerations for purchasing small equipment, tableware, and table linens. This book is comprehensive in nature and focuses on the whole facility-with more attention to the equipment-rather than emphasizing either front of the house or back of the house.
A complete blueprint for all types of restaurant development--from concept through construction
A comprehensive and practical approach to designing for the growing senior market<br> <br> As people live longer, stay healthier, and enjoy more disposable income, their use of hospitality services is increasing dramatically. Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation helps you cater to this expanding market by providing critical information on designing facilities which are sensitive to the needs of the over-65 population. With the important principles explained in this book, designing for the senior consumer can be creative, cost-effective, and benefit all consumers without sacrificing style.<br> <br> This indispensable guide includes: <br> * A Universal Design approach that can be applied to both commercial and residential projects, going beyond compliance with ADA guidelines <br> * A wide range of hospitality design, including restaurants, hotel guest rooms, lobbies, and lounges <br> * Design principles beautifully illustrated with concise, detailed drawings <br> * Extensive coverage of the specific physical needs and psychology of seniors, including physical strength, hearing, sight, color preferences, and other areas <br> * A quick-reference checklist of "senior-friendly" design features<br> <br> <br> When the interior design needs of the over-65 market are met, all potential users gain, regardless of age or ability. This accessible book is an invaluable resource for designers, operators, and other professionals throughout the hospitality industry.<br> <br> With millions of baby boomers rapidly approaching retirement age, the over-65 age group is the fastest-growing segment of the population. As they become healthier, live longer, and have more disposable income, their use of hospitality services, such as hotels and restaurants, will increase dramatically. Whether you are a designer or a hospitality professional, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation helps you plan for this growing market by providing you with critical information for designing facilities that accommodate the needs of all generations.<br> <br> Clearly written and generously illustrated, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation shows you how to address the specific physical and psychological needs of seniors, with detailed chapters on mobility, hearing, vision, color preferences, and other important areas. Going beyond ADA guidelines, Alfred Baucom's Universal Design approach enables you to integrate senior-friendly design principles into a wide range of specific environments --from lobbies, common areas, and public restrooms to restaurants, lounges, and hotel guest rooms.<br> <br> In meeting the needs of the over-65 market, Hospitality Design for the Graying Generation ensures that all potential users, regardless of age or ability, will be well accommodated.
In clear, easy-to-grasp language, the author covers many of the topics that you will need to know in order to win your dream job and be the first in line for a promotion.
This text has been produced for the benefit of students in computer and infor- mation science and for experts involved in the design of microprocessors. It deals with the design of complex VLSI chips, specifically of microprocessor chip sets. The aim is on the one hand to provide an overview of the state of the art, and on the other hand to describe specific design know-how. The depth of detail presented goes considerably beyond the level of information usually found in computer science text books. The rapidly developing discipline of designing complex VLSI chips, especially microprocessors, requires a significant extension of the state of the art. We are observing the genesis of a new engineering discipline, the design and realization of very complex logical structures, and we are obviously only at the beginning. This discipline is still young and immature, alternate concepts are still evolving, and "the best way to do it" is still being explored. Therefore it is not yet possible to describe the different methods in use and to evaluate them. However, the economic impact is significant today, and the heavy investment that companies in the USA, the Far East, and in Europe, are making in gener- ating VLSI design competence is a testimony to the importance this field is expected to have in the future. Staying competitive requires mastering and extending this competence.
