Description

A new building goes up with external walls of straw bale construction, a turf roof that also contains photovoltaic cells which provide some of the energy required, and a grey water recycling system that is used to provide water to toilers. However it also has a traditional mass concrete foundation system and gas-fired central heating. Can it truly be called 'green'?

Total Sustainability in the Built Environment is the first textbook to tackle sustainability issues covering the whole life cycle of a construction project, from the planning phase to considering how the building will be used in a sustainable way once construction is completed. It covers all aspects of construction including renewable energy sources, refurbishment and even cutting-edge smart technologies which can help regulate the internal environment of a building at the click of a switch or sensor.

Total Sustainability in the Built Environment:

is comprehensive - everything you need to know about the sustainable built environment, conveniently brought together in a single book

follows the life cycle of the building process, making it ideal for reading cover to cover, or for dipping into according to your study requirements

includes a chapter devoted to case studies of green construction projects to illustrate the application of theory into practice

is written by a team of experienced editors and contributors who draw on a wealth of academic and practical experience including their own consultancy work on major NHS building projects

is aimed at students across the whole spectrum of Built Environment courses
