Description

This latest edition of Rough Guide to Sustainability remains a simple, no-nonsense reference source for all students and practitioners of sustainability in the built environment. It sets out the broad environmental, professional and governmental context underlying sustainability principles, and outlines the science, measures and design solutions that must be adopted to meet current definitions of responsible architecture.

The fourth edition covers the latest developments in a rapidly expanding sector. It offers a wider international scope than ever before, and includes new information on the role of BIM in sustainable design, assessment tools and techniques, and the RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Brand new material also discusses the impact of the latest legislative, social and technological developments.

Now in full colour and extensively illustrated throughout, this guide is essential reading for design and built environment students and professionals – and anyone keen to cut through to the facts about sustainability.

Jon from RIBA Bookshops says: “Not so much a ‘rough guide’ as a broad insight into the topic of sustainability, including theory, regulations, resources, and design. The neat layout, with clear tables and diagrams, and logical progression make for a book that can be used both for easy reference and a cover-to-cover read.”

Customer Reviews

Fiona Brazil, Lecturer, South West College

Date Reviewed: November 2014

This is a really popular text and referred to by architects and architectural students widely. Rough Guide covers a lot of case studies and gives students plenty of guidance on further reading material and sources for further research. The addition of post-occupancy evaluation and data required for successfully sustainable facilities management by Building Information Modelling is key to introduce to students to familiarise them with this terminology going out into industry.
