Description

Taking a focused, material-based approach to sustainable design, LEED Materials: A Resource Guide to Green Building presents almost 200 innovative materials, products, and services, and shows how to use them to achieve the best results. Organised by the CSI MasterFormat Division system for ease of use, the book also takes the reader inside the code for new construction (the broadest code), revealing the pitfalls and bonus moves of using the products for maximum credits (certain products can even be used to achieve several LEED credits in the way the material is applied) and putting that coveted Platinum rating well within reach.

LEED Materials does not focus on the philosophy of building green or the reasons why it's a good thing. Most people understand why going green is a good thing, but in the end, the decision that people make, the products and materials that are applied, that make a difference. This book is the first step toward a healthier, more environmentally sensitive way of building. Steven Winter, former chairman of the U.S. Green Building Council, contributes a foreword.
