About this book

An important consideration for energy-efficient buildings is their primary energy requirements over the entire life cycle. How to determine this? What integrative factors influence the performance of a healthy and sustainable building? This, while it may be important for clients and architects to know, is frequently not very transparent.
This book has been written to assist with clarifying target criteria and expanding horizons when it comes to ecological buildings. It is meant as a handbook and source of reference for clients, architects, planners and building operators, to provide them with pertinent information about their design, construction and operation: how to do this in the most energy-efficient and economical manner?
Also, there is feedback and documentation about prominent buildings like the Hamburg Dockland or the Landesbank Baden-Wuerttemberg in Stuttgart. They provide excellent architectural examples for detailed construction and design solutions. Further, there are insightful interviews with architects and clients about many important buildings, which help turn this book into an integrated source of reference for sustainable architecture.

- A Guideline for Planning, Construction and Operation of sustainable Buildings
- A source of reference for clients, architects, planners and building operators
- Innovative architectural examples with sustainable concepts and design

Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:

"Die Publikation will anhand von zahlreichen Projekten aus der Praxis neue Wege für ein wirtschaftlich und ökologisch nachhaltiges Vorgehen bei Planung, Bau und Betrieb von Green Buildings aufzeigen. Die Autoren geben mit technischen Lösungen darauf Antworten und nehmen ökologische ausgerichtete Gebäude unter die Lupe. ... Ebenso enthält die Publikation Vorschläge für eine Bewertung von Green Buildings und dient damit als Diskussionsgrundlage für zukünftige Bewertungskriterien von Green Buildings ..."
