Description: With more and more clients and architecture schools demanding green design, both student and professional architects need to get up to speed quickly with the vast range of techniques in this fast moving area. This extensive and user-friendly handbook presents practical guidelines for applying environmental strategies during the schematic design of green buildings. For each strategy, the book provides: brief descriptions of principles and concepts, step-by-step approaches for integrating technologies into the early stages of design, annotated tables and charts to assist with preliminary design sizing, key issues to be aware of when implementing a given strategy, and references to the most recent international standards and rating systems, guidelines, and internet resources. The text is reinforced with conceptual sketches and photos in full color, illustrating each strategy. A discussion of the green design process and case studies of several green building projects puts the strategies presented in context. * Provides information required to implement green design ideas with confidence and accuracy. * Practical information provided in an easy-to-use format. * Full colour images throughout.
