If you are looking to build, extend, renovate or are just generally interested in wanting more information about sustainable building then this book will tick all the boxes. Tim Pullen puts across in a very clear way the choices available in an easy-to-follow style, which is both comprehensive, yet jargon free. The facts and figures, together with both the pros and cons of each the technologies are there to assist you in making a fully informed decision.
Pullen explains that the design is such an important factor before starting on any project and that the "unsexy" bit - insulation, draught proofing and radiator treatment - are all extremely important (we at the Greenshop cannot emphasise this enough to potential customers visiting us). His further chapters explain the facts about renewable energy, sustainable materials, water management, a guide to relevant UK regulations, SAP calculations, the Code for Sustainable Homes, and the last chapter is all about being "100% sustainable" in building.
All in all, this book contains a lot of very useful information put across in a accessible way.
A no-nonsense guide to green building.
