These Green Building Technology Guides provide you with a comprehensive set of tools to understand, evaluate, design, and execute green building strategies in your projects! Expert authors share clear and concise steps to achieve high-performance building solutions at multiple levels, from basic LEED projects to advanced Zero Net Energy Buildings (ZNEB), exploring all aspects of green building design. Materials, equipment, systems, methods, and resources are all broken down by CSI format, and aligned with USGBC LEED categories, as well as Enterprise Green Communities criteria.
This Green Building Technology Guide focuses on residential applications. It discusses materials from masonry and wood to furniture; building systems such as passive heating and cooling, and sustainable lighting; and energy systems, like wind, photovoltaic, and smart grid technology.
The green and sustainable technologies presented in these three volumes showcase newly available and soon-to-be released prototype products and systems. You will be able to incorporate these cutting-edge concepts into your designs and projects with confidence, as the technologies are fully and clearly explained. From design professional to student, and from builder to owner, these resources offer a clear and detailed guide to the greenest, newest and highest tech green products and systems available.
