The second edition of Sustainable Construction will be published in November
The first chapter provides an updated perspective on the history of ideas
behind sustainable development and a sample of precedents from FLW¹s Solar
Hemicycle to The Ark on Prince Edward Island and Arcosanti that lead the way
to sustainable buildings and cities.
Subsequent chapters look at legislation, policy, cost, appraisal tools,
materials, environmental design, energy generation, water & sewage
management, process issues and urban ecology. Each chapter has succinct
nuggets of information supported by ten relevant and highly varied best
practice case studies. Each chapter also contains a fulsome bibliography.
The book is heavily illustrated in full colour and is an ideal,
contemporary, accessible primer to courses in Building, Architecture,
Construction, Environmental Engineering, Project Management, Landscape,
Urbanism and Development.
The author, Professor Sandy Halliday, welcomes invitations to present
aspects of the book to University, client and professional audiences.
