Green Building Technology Guide: Commercial presents users with a comprehensive set of tools that allow them to understand, evaluate, design, and execute green building strategies.

The book includes commentary from expert authors who share clear- and-concise best practices for achieving high-performance building solutions at multiple levels, from basic LEED projects to advanced Zero Net Energy Buildings (ZNEB), exploring all aspects of green building design.

Materials, equipment, systems, methods, and resources are all broken down by CSI format and aligned with USGBC LEED categories, as well as Enterprise Green Communities criteria.

Materials discussed include concrete/fly ash, structural steel, building systems such as green roofs and translucent walls, and energy systems, like building-mounted wind turbines, photovoltaics, and active building envelopes. The green and sustainable technologies presented in this volume showcase newly available and soon-to-be released prototype products and systems.
