GREEN BUILDING: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES IN RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION provides a current, comprehensive guide to this exciting, emerging field. From core concepts to innovative applications of cutting-edge technology and the latest industry trends, this text offers an in-depth introduction to the construction of "green" homes. Unlike many texts that adopt a product-oriented approach, this book emphasizes the crucial planning, processes, and execution methods necessary for effective, environmentally sound construction. This text demonstrates that Earth-friendly products and energy-efficient materials take planning in order to make a building truly green. This visionary text helps students and professionals develop the knowledge and skills to "think green" from start to finish, empowering and inspiring them to build truly sustainable homes.

Review:

"If you are thinking about creating a course in green home building, this book is for you. Students are tired of the same recycled photographs from the 1970's. This book's contemporary photographs and figures will excite your students about the possibility of building green homes."Richard Bruce, Department of Technology & Construction Management, Missouri State University

"According to my knowledge, this book is the most comprehensive treatment on the subject of green building in residential construction. It achieves an excellent balance between principles and real-world practice. The "best practice" approach (i.e. integrating of green principles with existing design/construction practices) as well as the attention to construction issues are excellent. The book is not only valuable for college faculty and students in architecture, engineering, landscape, interior design and construction, but also as a reference for industry practitioners (owners/buyers, architects, engineers, contractors, and building department officials etc.)"Lingguang Song, Ph.D, Department of Construction Management, University of Houston
