Abstract:

"This material is suitable for courses in Sustainable Construction; undergraduate or graduate courses that focus on LEED-AP training; and for any individual who is studying for the LEED-NC Accredited Professional Exam. Whether you are studying to take the LEED® Accredited Professional (AP) Exam or you are a student in a construction related program, this book is for you! Thorough and complete coverage explains the "how" and the "why" of sustainable construction so you can be better prepared for the LEED® AP Exam and life in the field. Sustainable Construction and Design provides a solid foundation in the underlying conceptual framework of sustainable construction. Part One focuses on the foundations of sustainability, including the origins of sustainable design, the ecological structure of matter and the physical laws that govern it. Part Two provides a sustainable construction roadmap and how the concepts can be applied in the real world. It Addresses the LEED® prerequisites and credits and follows a commercial construction project through the certification process. Sustainable Construction and Design also expands sustainable concepts beyond the LEED® Credit Template and ideas into the residential arena as it reviews the process of a collaborative project that students created with Habitat for Humanity. It explains in depth about the qualities and conditions needed to create a successful design charrette, as it is the critical vehicle that brings both collaboration and whole-systems thinking into the process. The DVD that is included with the textbook assists in creating the loose structure of a design charrette."--Publisher's website.
