Published by Wiley
A unique cost reference, updated and expanded, for architects, engineers, contractors, building owners, and managersGreen building is no longer a trend. Since the publication of the widely read first edition of this book, green building has become a major advancement in design and construction. Building codes and standards have adopted much stricter energy efficiencies. Businesses, institutions, and communities have discovered huge savings, along with health and marketing advantages, in sustainable building. Private facilities, as well as public buildings for Federal, state, and local governments are increasingly required to design and build sustainably in both new construction and renovation.This Third Edition has been updated with the latest in green building tech-nologies, design concepts, standards, and costs. The chapters, case studies, and resources give you practical guidance on green building, including the latest on:Green building approaches, materials, rating systems, standards, and guidelinesEnergy efficiencies, implementing energy modeling toolsDesigning and specifying, as well as commissioning, green building projectsOften-specified products and materials, as well as a sample specGoals and techniques for health, comfort, and productivityEvaluating the cost versus value of green products over their life cycleLow-cost green strategies, and special economic incentives and fundingBuilding deconstruction and cost considerationsWith a new chapter on greening of commercial real estate, this reference is a one-stop resource for the latest in green building approaches and implementation.The contributors, all prominent leaders in green building, include:Mark Kalin, FAIA, FCSI, author of the original GreenSpecAndy Walker, Ph.D., PE, senior engineer with NRELJoseph Macaluso, AACE, certified cost consultantOn the cover:Kendall Square Research Laboratory in Cambridge, Massachusetts, by CO Architects. Completed in 2010, the building was pre-certified for LEED Gold and designed for energy efficiency. The curtain wall system is standardized for the entire building, with infill and suspended shading elements varying on each of the building's four facades in response to geographic orientation. Natural light for work spaces is maximized while solar radiation is minimized. Photograph by Peter Vanderwarker.
