Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering
German term or phrase: Raumbuch
Not much context as is one term within a list. All I know is that it has something to do with construction and construction planning. A google search returned nothing, but I suspect it may be a kind of log book - can anyone help?

Thanks Poornima - I translated it as "room log" in the end - Your reference was unfortunately unreliable as it is a German source and in fact the term itself was actually in quotation marks - as if the author wasn't really sure him/herself what the right term was. Thanks anyway.

room specification


Explanation:
Lots of entries in altavista search :)

Raumbuch: In einem Raumbuch werden für jeden Raum eines zu erstellenden Bauwerks alle den Raum beschreibenden Maße, Baustoffe, Einbauteile etc. detailliert beschrieben. Das Raumbuch stellt somit zusammen mit dem LV und den Werkplänen eine hervorragende Grundlage für die Erstellung, Überwachung und Abrechnung eines Bauwerks dar. Unterstützt wird die Erstellung eines Raumbuchs durch zahlreiche am Markt verfügbare Software-Programme.

http://www.bau.net/lexikon.htm#R

Das Raumbuch ist eine Datenbank, die alle Informationen zur Ausstattung der Räume eines Objektes beinhaltet (z.B. Abmaße, Flächenbeläge, Türen, Fenster, Sonderausstattungen, Installationen). Das Raumbuch ist die Basis für die mengenmäßige Festlegung der Ausbaugewerke und der zu beschaffenden Ausbaumaterialien.

Sincerely Yours,

ledger


Explanation:
just a guess...but only if you think the book is used to keep financial records. Otherwise, it's probably a log book, just like everyone else says.

Hauptbuch is often translated as 'ledger'.
