Integrated Sustainable Design of Buildings



Integrated Sustainable Design of Buildings by Paul (Consultant, UK) Appleby

Integrated Sustainable Design of Buildings aims to provide a guide to members of design and masterplanning 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 extensive scope includes all aspects of environmental, social and economic sustainability, including strategies to reduce carbon emissions and the impact of climate change. Integrated Sustainable Design of Buildings appeared in the Cambridge Top 40 Sustainability Books of 2010.


Paul Appleby has produced one of those reference books that will soon become essential for those involved in sustainable design. The range of topics and depth of knowledge in many of its chapters makes it a source of valuable information and practical advice, based on his many years as a specialist consultant. Rab Bennetts, Director, Bennetts Associates Architects

A comprehensive resource; accessible, well-structured and robust in useful details. A book I expect to refer to often, and to refer it to other people often as well. Adrian Penfold, Head of Planning and Environment, British Land Company plc

It might seem perverse to call a 400 page book concise but this has everything you need to know and won't now be afraid to ask. It effortlessly manages to set the historical context alongside the latest information. Its elegant directness is highly readable. The diagrams and photographs are attractive. No excuse now for not knowing, just keep it to hand. This is the real zeal. Piers Gough, Partner, CZWG Architects, London

In 'Integrated Sustainable Design of Buildings', Paul Appleby succeeds in doing the seemingly impossible: explaining all the main aspects of sustainable building in only approximatly 400 pages. His writing is concise, succinct andknowledgeable.
