About this book

Firstly, exactly what are Green buildings? Buildings have a major impact upon the world's resources and upon the health of people who occupy them and Green buildings are designed specifically to reduce the level of resources consumed, whether energy, raw materials or water. In the process of using less finite resources and more renewable ones development becomes healthier and more user-friendly. Green Buildings Pay examines, through case studies of commercial and university buildings, how different approaches to green design can produce more sustainable patterns of development. The case studies are described by their designers and often also by the client, thereby ensuring that the buildings are seen in the context of market realities. Two important conclusions can be drawn from this: firstly, that green buildings do pay for themselves in financial terms, and that secondly, green buildings lead to enhanced satisfaction by users which will lead to improved levels of productivity. This new edition features new chapters on "Green" schools covering the importance of school buildings to learning, design guidance for schools and two case studies of best practice.
