A Handbook of sustainable building design and engineering: an integrated approach to energy, health and operational performance of buildings

Share this Post:
The combined challenges of health, comfort, climate change and energy security cross the boundaries of traditional building disciplines. This authoritative collection focusing mostly on energy and ventilation provides the current and next generation of building engineering professionals with what they need to work closely with many disciplines to meet these challenges. "A Handbook of Sustainable Building Design and Engineering: an Integrated Approach to Energy, Health and Operational Performance of Buildings" covers: how to design, engineer and monitor a building in a manner that minimises the emissions of greenhouse gases; how to adapt the environment, fabric and services of existing and new buildings to climate change; and, how to improve the environment in and around buildings to provide better health, comfort, security and productivity, and provides crucial expertise on monitoring the performance of buildings once they are occupied. The authors explain the principles behind built environment engineering, and offer practical guidance through international case studies. This work offers highly practical coverage of design, engineering, adaptation and monitoring of sustainable buildings. Written by leading international experts, it is an essential toolkit for building engineers and advanced students.
