9780470056219: Contractors Guide to Green Building Construction: Management, Project Delivery, Documentation, and Risk Reduction

Written for contractors and endorsed by the Associated General Contractors of America

Written specifically for contractors, this "how-to" book enables you to meet the challenges of green building construction. You'll discover how constructing environmentally friendly, sustainable buildings influences project management, delivery, documentation, and risk. Moreover, the book guides you through these important considerations at all phases of a green construction project, including:

  • Bidding and contracting
  • Managing green design when the contractor works as a design builder
  • Subcontracting
  • Procurement
  • Construction management
  • Project commissioning and closeout

This book is endorsed by the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) and was written with the assistance and advice of a specially assembled AGC task force. With a focus on the green building process from the contractor's viewpoint, the book avoids endorsing any one green building rating system in favor of presenting the business fundamentals common to them all.

Throughout the presentation, flowcharts and other features offer working tools for successfully managing green construction projects. Plus, real-world case studies developed through discussions with the actual contractors involved help you understand exactly what to expect and how to best manage constructing a green building. In short, this is one book that you need to have on hand to be a part of the rapidly growing green building movement.
