Review:

"...the book serves as an excellent design primer and guide to the environmental performance required of contemporary architecture and engineering." -- Building Services Journal

"It covers very technical issues, but in a way that makes them interesting, readable and understandable. It has been put together with an understanding of architecture and of how architects and engineers work...For practising architects and undergraduates alike, this book contains much useful and thoughtful guidance. Designers should be able to use it to improve the way they address environmental design." -- The Architect's Journal
