Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The Environmental Design Pocketbook 2nd ed places the information you need for sustainable, low energy building design at your fingertips.

Packed with diagrams, tools and tips, it cuts through the complex mass of technical data and legislation that faces the designer, and distils all the key guidance into a single reference that is quick, easy to use and points to the facts, figures and performance data that are most important.

This 2nd edition is now fully up-to-date with the latest Building Regulations Part L and F legislation (England and Wales), RIBA Plan of Work 2013, new information on the Green Deal and Zero Carbon and contains revised references and further reading sections throughout.

The new edition also continues to provide:

- Guidance on all core sustainability topics

- Handy tools, allowing quick design estimates

- Design guidance, technology, building science and best practice

Whether used in the classroom, office or on-site, the book guides the designer through the entire process; from the fundamentals to the building details. From future-proofing for a changing climate to rainwater harvesting, retrofit, and zero-carbon technologies - the Pocketbook has got it covered.
