This manual provides a handy, straightforward summary of energy efficient building use. It assumes no prior knowledge of the subject. It looks at building fabric as well as building services. It provides background on building regulations, energy audits, how to calculate the cost effectiveness of new measures and looks at the latest 'green' issues and government tax policies. Why should I buy this book? It summarises the essentials, rather than dealing with complex theory. It is aimed at busy managers.


It is aimed at all construction professionals, including architects, surveyors, civil engineers and builders who want to broaden their knowledge on the production of construction work. It will also be of interest to clients and their project managers who are engaged, or about to be engaged, in building work.
