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.
'This book steps forward boldly to present a vast array of information in a way that is accessible to professionals and lay people ... [it] will be useful to all those interested in finding greener ways of designing and making buildings ... [and] will enable you to make better-informed decisions.'-Building
