Description

Closing the Loop Benchmarks for Sustainable Buildings, seeks to provide practical solutions to the expanding palette of issues, indicators and benchmarks for sustainable building performance that will equip designers, developers and occupants with the tools and techniques they need to deliver better buildings. It provides the reader with a way to close the loop of the building design process, enabling a more holistic approach to what is currently a fragmented development system. The book also suggests ways to achieve sustainable building performance standards in the UK, allowing us to meet the UK Governments target of reducing carbon dioxide emissions to 20 per cent below 1990 levels by 2010.

"It's far and away the best, most reasonably priced, and was most useful for getting up to speed, on the topic." Brian Linfoot, Senior Lecturer, School of the Built Environment, Heriot-Watt University.
