Abstract:

It is estimated that the building sector uses roughly half of all the energy generated in this country, a very high proportion of materials and creates huge volumes of landfill wastes. This means that to make a difference we need to look at how we build, how we can reduce energy use and costs, how we future proof our buildings and minimise their carbon footprint. This book is the first comprehensive step in providing assistance for all of us to make a difference to our environment and to lead more comfortable, cost efficient and sustainable lives within the buildings we inhabit.
