Publisher Comments:

The Ecological Engineer is a new book series that celebrates the most innovative engineers in North America and the practices and principles that they use to produce functionally outstanding structures, systems and technologies, in a way that embraces the emerging philosophy of sustainable design. Organized into three critical sections: Practice, Principles and Projects, the book provides a valuable resource and touchstone for engineers, architects and other building professionals who hope to embrace an ethic that is responsible to both people and the environment. Volume One: KEEN Engineering focuses on the innovative work of one of the leading sustainable MEP firms in North America: KEEN Engineering. As mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers who work on projects all over the continent, they have consistently been inspiring on multiple levels, as a company, as individuals and just by the sheer volume and quality of their work.
