Article Type: Recent publications From: Structural Survey, Volume 29, Issue 3
This book aims to provide a guide to members of design and master-planning teams on how to deliver sustainable development and buildings cost effectively, meeting current and emerging UK and international statutory and planning requirements. Using a series of case histories and examples from the author’s ten years of providing sustainability advisory services, the book sets out a clear and understandable strategy that deals with all aspects of sustainable design and construction and the implications for delivery, costs, saleability and long term operation. The scope includes all aspects of environmental, social and economic sustainability, including strategies to reduce carbon emissions and the impact of climate change. The book is written by Paul Appleby, published by Earthscan (now part of the Taylor & Francis Group) and priced at £49.99 (ISBN 9781849711173).
