About the Book

Closing the Loop: Benchmarks for Sustainable Buildings is an authoritative guide to the issues and techniques behind benchmarking sustainable construction. It describes how to measure and achieve sustainability in construction. It contains a palette of issues, indicators and benchmarks, techniques, methods and tools - assembled from practice in the UK and around the world - that will give designers, developers and occupants an overview and understanding of the complex challenges they face to deliver truly 'sustainable' buildings. The book describes the range of sustainable design options and the various tools and techniques that can be used to investigate their success, all with the aim of enabling a more holistic approach to what currently is a fragmented development system.
