Green Guide to the Architect's Job Book

Increasingly required by regulation, sustainable design is neither a luxury issue nor an optional extra. Following the Work Stage structure of the RIBA's Outline Plan of Work, this book explains the 'cradle-to-cradle' sustainable design principles to adopt at the very start of every new project. The Green Guide to the Architect's Job Book is a highly readable process map through the complexities of design and construction to aid the successful delivery of long-term sustainability in our built environment. Totally up-to-date and compatible with the Architect's Job Book, the Green Guide nonetheless stands alone as a straightforward, practical aide-memoire based on hard-won experience in the real world for architects and, importantly, project managers and clients, many of whom are actively seeking sustainable buildings.

Sustainability

Sustainability is part of a brand new series providing must-read practical guidance to running efficient and successful projects using the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013. Each guide takes a core project task - in this case those associated with achieving sustainable design and construction - and explains the essential activities required at each stage. Concise and easy to use with a consistent format these guides provide the ultimate quick reference support at your desk or on-site. An authoritative 'how to' full of pragmatic advice, examples and in-text features such as 'hints and tips' that illuminate best practice and clever solutions. Designed to be used on all projects - large and small - and across all types of procurement, they are task rather than role-oriented acknowledging that a variety of people take on these responsibilities. They are also invaluable for architectural students at Part 3 who are getting to grips with the realities of practice.
