Description

This book furthers the debate on new sustainability thinking in the built environment by bringing together a selection of contributions from thought leaders in the UK and the rest of the world with an overarching narrative from Martin Brown.

Central to the book is the emergence of net positive and restorative sustainability, exploring the shift from an often blinkered focus on sustainability as simply energy performance to a more roundedsocial, wellness, health and healthy buildings debate.

It also spotlights sharing and collaboration through social media and BIM as new tools in the ‘sustainability toolbox’ which provide opportunities to rapidly advance sustainability thinking, development and action.

The books covers basically everything on sustainable construction, energy efficiency, life cycle, materials, BIM, legislation, assessment systems. It also features great case studies. For beginners to experts, there is valuable content to everyone in the construction sector. It is practical, to the point and useful. I do recommend!

Great book, thanks to Martin Brown for having made a text where every word, phrase and concept make us reflect on our approach to sustainability and why it is important today to be Restorative and not just green!
