This is an up-to-date guide to the Latest LEED-New Construction Guidelines. Fully revised for version 3.0 of the LEED-New Construction rating system (LEED-2009), this GreenSource book helps you acquire the skills needed to apply LEED-NC to sustainable construction projects. "The Engineering Guide to LEED-New Construction, second edition", offers comprehensive coverage of the environmental systems and impacts on which many of the LEED-NC subcategories are based. Detailed equations and exercises in the book can be used to perform the calculations outlined in LEED-NC.

Valuable information on real-world applications of LEED-NC in military, low-impact development (LID), and other sectors is included in this practical resource.
