9780415391993: The ZEDbook: Solutions for a Shrinking World

Though few now doubt the severity of the environmental problems faced by humanity there is still resistance from businesses, developers, architects, planners and government when it comes to making the step changes necessary to make our lifestyles sustainable.

Based on the experience gained from their involvement in the pioneering Beddington Zero Emission Development (or BedZED) in London, and subsequent innovative schemes, The ZEDbook authors present a bold, coherent and refreshing vision of a low carbon future.

In three comprehensive sections, The ZEDbook leads the reader from basic ZEDliving principles through building physics and architectural design details to a carefully selected array of informative case studies.

The ZEDbook is a must-have purchase for anyone wanting to make communities and the built environment more sustainable.

About the Author:

Bill Dunster formed Bill Dunster architects in 1998. In 2002 he completed the award winning BedZED (Beddington Zero Energy Development), the UK's largest carbon neutral eco-community. The architectural practice now has its own range of low carbon construction products – ZEDfabric – and has recently launched the RuralZED zero carbon self build house kit.

Craig Simmons is the co-founder and Technical Director of Best Foot Forward, one of Europe’s leading environmental consultancies. In 2005 the company was awarded a Queen’s Award for sustainability development. In 2000, Craig co-authored Sharing Nature’s Interest – the definitive book on ecological footprinting – and currently sits on the standards committee of the Global Footprint Network.

Bobby Gilbert is a mathematician and chartered engineer with 20 years’ experience in designing simulation and monitoring systems. He runs his own building physics consultancy and software development business which recently launched ‘Carbon Mixer’, a software tool already adopted by many local authorities and consultants. Bobby also teaches building physics and simulation on post-graduate courses.

Review:

"A remarkable achievement, both for the initiative it documents - probably the most comprehensive sustainable building system in the UK - and for being a reference manual as at home on the coffee table as it is on the study shelf."  Ecologist, April 2008

"This book is at once an instrumental manual and a testament; a roadmap to future success, but also, crucially, a laudable record of what has already been achieved." Ecologist, April 2008
