Green Building Handbook: Volume 1 : A Guide to Building Products and their Impact on the Environment Paperback / softback

Description

Environmentally responsible building involves resolving many conflicting issues and requirements.

Each stage in the design process from the fundamental decisions about what, where and even whether to build has implications for the environment.

Evolving out of the success of Green Building Digest, a publication described by Building Design as well-researched, authoritative and exhaustive, this practical new handbook considers the environmental issues which relate to the production, use and disposal of key building products and materials.

It is designed to help specifiers and purchasers gain awareness of the potential environmental impact of their decisions.

Chapter by chapter Green Building Handbook looks at a different sector of the trade from flooring to roofing, comparing the environmental effects of commonly available products with less well known green alternatives.

A Best Buy section then ranks these products from lowest to highest impact.
