Product Description

The green building movement has come a long way in a short time. Responding to
this exponential growth, with its attendant technological as well as aesthetic
developments, Sustainable Construction: Green Building Design and Deliver,
Second Edition guides construction and design professionals through the process
of developing commercial and institutional high-performance green buildings in
today's marketplace.

In this revised edition, Charles Kibert delivers a detailed, and passionate,
overview of the entire process of green building, covering the theory, history,
state of the industry, and best practices in green building. Kibert uses not
only the dominant LEED assessment system, but includes such newer ones as Green
Globes and several noteworthy building assessment systems from other countries.

Sections introduce the background of the green building movement and walk you
through such aspects as the background of high-performance green building
design, green-building assessment, the green building process, and ecological design.

Broad enough to cover the needs of faculty and students in architecture,
engineering, landscape architecture, interior design, and construction
management, yet focused enough to serve as a reference for building owners and
buyers of construction services, Sustainable Construction is a comprehensive
look at an emerging process that is environmentally sounds while making good economic sense.
