The Ecology of Building Materials explores key questions surrounding sustainability of building materials. With legislation such as the Code for Sustainable Homes being introduced to regulate the required sustainability of new builds, it is essential that sustainability starts with the raw materials of a project. The book provides technical data to enable architects to choose the most appropriate sustainable materials for a project, as well as providing information and guidance on a wide range of issues such as recycling, Life Cycle Analysis, and manufacturers' environmental claims. Berge's book, translated from the Norwegian by Chris Butters and Filip Henley, offers safe and environmentally friendly options, to avoid high consumption of energy and materials in building. It provides an essential and easy-to-use reference guide to this complex subject for the building industry professional. * Fully updated with increased focus on climate change issues * Technical data allows an informed choice of the most appropriate and environmentally friendly building materials * Details methods for recycling and reuse of materials.
