About this book

Increasingly required by regulation, sustainable design is neither a luxury issue nor an optional extra. Following the Work Stage structure of the RIBA's Outline Plan of Work, Green Guide to the Architect's Job Book explains the 'cradle-to-cradle' sustainable design principles to adopt at the very start of every new project.

The Green Guide to the Architect's Job Book is a highly readable process map through the complexities of design and construction to aid the successful delivery of long-term sustainability in our built environment. Totally up-to-date and compatible with the Architect's Job Book, the Green Guide nonetheless stands alone as a straightforward, practical aide-memoire based on hard-won experience in the real world for architects and, importantly, project managers and clients, many of whom are actively seeking sustainable buildings.
