Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Buildings have a major impact upon the world's resources and upon the health of people who occupy them. Green buildings are designed specifically to reduce the level of resource consumed, whether energy, raw materials or water. This successful guide examines, through case studies how different approaches to green design can produce more sustainable patterns of development. The studies are described by their designers and often also by the client, thereby ensuring that the buildings are seen in the context of market realities. This book will be vital reading for professional groups ranging from design to procurement and management. This new edition features new chapters on "green" schools covering the importance of school buildings to learning, design guidance for schools and two case studies of best practice.
