Design and Construct High-Performance Buildings on Standard Budgets

This comprehensive, well-illustrated guide covers the entire process of building a certified green building. It offers expert insight into tackling various projects, from concept and design, to unifying members of the team, to constructing high-performance buildings on time and within budget.

Written by one of the building industry's foremost experts in this area, "Green Building Through Integrated Design" includes case studies of a number of projects in North America. The book features interviews with key players to illuminate the integrated design process, including relevant issues, difficult challenges, and problem-solving techniques. "Green Building Through Integrated Design" is the most complete overview of green building project delivery methods available, and is a thorough blueprint that every member of the project team will find invaluable.

Includes: Key questions to ask at each stage of the green building process Profiles of 30 projects in the U.S. and Canada Detailed interviews with numerous designers and builders Useful checklists, tables, and charts, and numerous project photos Key tips on how to iimplement the LEED design and certification process Information on how to use green building project management software

"Green Building Through Integrated Design" covers: Project costs Business case benefits Green technologies Rating and certification systems Integrated design process Design Construction Certification process Operations Case studies

Three new books offer inspiration and practical advice for integrated, high-performance design. By B.J. Novitski It has become increasingly clear that high-performance design depends on an integrated design process. This is because sustainable, high-performing architecture is not achieved by tossing together a collection of green technologies but by the interaction of many technologies and ideas across disciplines and throughout the chronology of design/construction/operation. This is easy to say, but far harder to implement... Once inspired, a practitioner will ask: How is this really accomplished? In reply, Tucson, Arizona-based engineer Jerry Yudelson offers Green Building Through Integrated Design as a practice manual, packed with actionable information and showing the design process from many professional points of view. In lengthy quotes from architects, engineers, and building owners, he gives firsthand accounts of innovative teamwork. In this, the meatiest of the three books, the author specifies the characteristics of high-performance buildings, explains LEED categories in detail, and offers no-nonsense descriptions of collaboration at each design phase. Uniquely qualified, with degrees in both engineering and business administration, and a nationally recognized expert in green design, Yudelson describes the barriers perceived by clients and presents a business case for building green. The book includes an extraordinary, 400-item list of questions to consider at successive design phases. Only a fraction of buildings initially registered in the LEED database actually succeed in achieving certification. His advice can help firms reverse this trend. Don't look for glossy photos here; instead, you will find eminently practical diagrams, data, and ideas. Architectural Record 20090402
