Summary

Achieving a sustainable building is not just a matter of design and construction: what happens once the building is occupied is absolutely critical.

This book shows how the choices designers, developers and building users make impact on sustainability over the life span of the building. The authors show how a holistic approach considering costs, energy use, environmental impact, global warming potential as well as items which a usually disregarded such as finishes, furniture and appliances is needed to achieve best practice.
