Sustainable Buildings


Sustainable Buildings is an indispensable handbook that combines a summary of good practice and sources of information helpful to practitioners involved in the design and procurement of buildings.

This book illustrates the need for inter-disciplinary integration and an understanding of environmental physics as early as possible in the design process in order to deliver high-quality, economical and sustainable infrastructure across the globe.

With many years of knowledge related to the sustainability of buildings, the authors aim to provide a balanced view of current best practice and a vision of the way forward in a rapidly changing sector, the demands placed on its outputs and the solutions that are available.

Sustainable Buildings provides readers with:

• time-limited and output-driven perspectives of practical infrastructure practitioners
• real-life examples and case studies from a range of UK and worldwide projects
• a comparison of RIBA, ACE, French, Russian and US design processes
• a framework that allows engineers, architects, surveyors, constructors and others to work together as a team
• real-world advice on how, when and what professionals involved in infrastructure-related businesses need to consider.

Sustainable Buildings is part of the Delivering Sustainable Infrastructure series of handbooks aimed at providing engineers with an understanding of sustainability principles and solutions. To be useful for practitioners, the series sets sustainability concepts within well-known engineering management processes of planning, designing and delivering infrastructure.
