About this book

This handbook is the first to give concise, comprehensive guidance to the architect or planner wishing to make environmentally conscious choices whan selecting building materials. Products used at each stage of construction are clearly graded according to environmental impact. Behind the grading is extensive research into life cycle analysis of materials. Also taken into account is the impact on the immediate environment, for example heat retaining or cooling properties and incidental benefits to wildlife.
