Description - Environmental Design by Randall Thomas

Written and edited by a team of specialists at Max Fordham LLP, one of the UK's leading environmental and building services engineering consultancies, Environmental Design is the result of their extensive experience in designing environmentally-friendly buildings. The principles of their approach, which they have taught in numerous schools of architecture and engineering, are clearly presented here. This book is essential reading for architects, engineers, planners and students of these disciplines. The book starts with some basic scientific principles and environmental issues and then moves on to site planning, energy use, materials and buildings form. Natural ventilation systems, high-efficiency mechanical equipment and alternative energy sources are covered. State-of-the-art buildings of exceptional quality are incorporated throughout the text and illustrate the authors' belief that environmentally responsible architecture can be visually exciting. The book concludes with a selection of detailed case studies of award-winning projects - including Beaufort Court, King's Langley.
