Overview

This guide presents a volume of nine case studies to provide feedback from environmentally benign building projects to highlight proven cost effective and environmentally effective measures, to evaluate how good ideas in theory work in practice and to highlight the benefits and disbenefits of particular solutions. The case studies cover the main stages in a building's life cycle and include a range of building types in both commercial and domestic sectors. There are three 'mainstream' case studies : The Environmental Building at the Building Research Establishment, Weobley Primary school, Worcester County Council and Gibson Mill, National Trust. It states that important factors for achieving environmentally responsible solutions which were identified include an integrated design approach, careful choice of team members, good communications, a holistic view and flexibility. The guide concludes that the studies clearly show that environmental awareness can result in benefits at all stages of a building's life cycle.
