Summary Sustainability in the built environment is a major issue facing policy makers, planners, developers and designers worldwide. Measuring of buildings and cities for sustainability is of increasing importance as pressure for green, sustainable development translates into policy and legislation.
Focusing on environmental assessment methods, this book considers the advantages and limits to current evaluation procedures, from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. It proposes new environmental and energy performance models at both building and city scales and addresses the four recognized sustainability principles: futurity, environment, equity and public participation.
The book is divided into three parts. Part One deals with city models and sustainable systems and covers research programmes, environmental policies, green corporations and collaborative strategies to make urban development more sustainable. Part Two considers the problem of evaluating the built environment in planning and construction, with regard to economic and environmental methods, and the construction, development and regeneration processes. Part Three illustrates numerous applications using different approaches and techniques and refers to a range of environmental aspects of the natural and built environment, from maintaining historic buildings to transport management and air pollution monitoring.
Evaluation of the Built Environment for Sustainability presents ideas and methods at the forefront of current thinking. It is a unique contribution to the current debate on sustainability and the built environment as a dynamic system which constantly changes with time. It will be of international appeal to researchers, practitioners, academics and policy makers involved in built environment/sustainability issues and urban planning.
