New Book: Sustainable Construction Processes by Steve Goodhew

This book explores the concepts and practicalities that lead to sustainable construction. It breaks new ground by providing the reader with the underlying principles of how to build sustainably and then assesses many of the tools required for the task. From energy to materials and from procurement to operation, all aspects play their part in turning a theoretically sustainable building project into a reality. There are many guidelines for the designer on how to maximise the sustainability of buildings but this resource text supplements these by focusing on the construction and operational aspects of sustainable buildings, as well as some of the more fundamental design-related considerations 

http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-140518759X.html


Prof Goodhew’s research specialises in the monitoring of buildings and the relationship to perceived building performance.  Steve focuses his research upon different monitoring techniques including the use of thermography and its use in relation to improving the energy and comfort performance of homes and commercial properties.  He also works in the areas of sustainable construction materials, thermal measurements and wider issues in relation to the energy use in buildings. Steve studied at Cranfield University for his Masters and has a doctorate from Plymouth University. Prof Goodhew is a Fellow of the RICS, CIOB and RSA.
