Practical solutions for sustainability In this timely guide, one of the world’s leaders in advancedbuilding technology implementation shows architects and engineersproven and practical methods for implementing these technologies insustainably-designed buildings. Because of the very limited timearchitects are given from being awarded a project to conceptdesign, this book offers clear and workable solutions forimplementing solar energy, radiant heating and cooling floors,displacement ventilation, net zero, and more. It provides helpfultips and suggestions for architects and engineers to work togetheron implementing these technologies, along with many innovativepossibilities for developing a truly integrated design. This bookalso explores and explains the many benefits of advancedtechnologies, including reduced greenhouse gas emissions, loweroperating costs, noise reduction, improved indoor air quality, andmore. In addition, Advanced Building Technologies forSustainability : Offers detailed coverage of solar energy systems, thermalenergy storage, geothermal systems, high-performance envelopes,chilled beams, under-floor air distribution, displacement inductionunits, and much more Provides case studies of projects using advanced technologiesand demonstrates their implementation in a variety of contexts andbuilding types Covers the implementation of advanced technologies in officetowers, large residential buildings, hospitals, schools,dormitories, theaters, colleges, and more Complete with a clear and insightful explanation of therequirements for and benefits of acquiring the U.S. Green BuildingCouncil’s LEED certification, Advanced Building Technologies forSustainability is an important resource for architects,engineers, developers, and contractors involved in sustainableprojects using advanced technologies.
