This authoritative new resource provides a comprehensive review of the current approaches to the design and construction of sustainable buildings. This hand-on guide features global case studies with practical examples of both successful and unsuccessful designs.

The whole system approach to integrated design is clearly presented. This book includes insight into designing for the future, including design quality and future proofing, intelligent buildings, and whole life value. Nature inspired sustainable designs that can be mimicked in the construction industry are presented. Technical challenges such as energy efficiency, design, and computer modeling are explored along with various construction phase opportunities.

"Dr David Strong, Victoria Burrows, and 22 contributing experts have assembled a clear and systematic guide to creating and operating efficient green buildings. With a global perspective, it will help guide next-generation buildings that will use little or no energy and less money while keeping occupants happy, healthy, and productive and the world richer, fairer, cooler, and safer." - Amory B. Lovins, Cofounder and Chief Scientist, Rocky Mountain Institute

"This book is a great reference for both practitioners and students pursuing engineering and architecture. The well-researched case studies on best practices and latest green building developments make a compelling case for project teams to take an integrated approach to sustainable building design, construction and operation." - Ang Kian Seng, Group Director, Environmental Sustainability, Building and Construction Authority, Singapore
