Summary "Sustainable building is attracting increasing interest. Many architects and planners wish to lessen the impact of building activities upon the environment. This handbook is the first to give concise, comprehensive guidance to the selection of building materials from an environmentally conscious viewpoint. Covering every aspect of both new building and refurbishment, the handbook clearly and simply grades the options available at each stage of construction. The recommendations made in the handbook are based upon extensive evaluation of the environmental impact of the materials, and practical experience of projects and pilot studies conducted in the Netherlands. The accessible presentation makes this an appropriate reference tool for all members of the building planning team."--BOOK JACKET
