Written at a basic level for the person seeking to create a new office building or retrofit an existing one, this book is not intended for the actual professional who might embark on the task. Bondanza (developmental book editor and freelance writer) has instead crafted a readable book covering all aspects of green building. The volume includes appendices that list useful websites, expand acronyms, and provide a green building glossary. Case studies are interwoven throughout.
