The Environmental Design Pocketbook places the information you need for sustainable, low-energy building design at your fingertips.
Packed with diagrams, tools, and tips, it cuts through the complex mass of technical data and legislation that faces the designer, and distils all the key guidance into a single reference that is quick and easy to use. Pointing to the facts, figures, and performance data that are most important, it includes:
- Succinct guidance on all core sustainability topics
- Concise explanations and reference to the latest legislation and codes
- Invaluable checklists
- Handy tools that allow you to quickly estimate the values relevant to your design
- Design guidance, technology, building science, and best practice.
Twelve sections guide the designer from the fundamentals through to the building details themselves. From future-proofing for a changing climate to rainwater harvesting, retrofit, and zero-carbon technologies – the Pocketbook has got it covered.
Written for architects, as well as engineers, planners, clients and developers, this handy new pocketbook will help the professional designer to meet and exceed sustainable standards.
