Description

Beyond Green™: Guidelines for High-Performance Homes—Meeting the Demand for Low-Energy, Resource-Efficient Homes.

Previously published as the Green Building Guidelines (the fifth edition came out in 2007), this, the sixth edition of the Guidelines, features an expanded focus on high-performance building attributes, from functionality to resilience against natural hazards.

The Guidelines for High-Performance Homes are not a rating system and do not assign point values to specific building elements. Rather, these Guidelines describe important aspects that make a home green. Broken into twelve chapters, including: Green Principles; Codes and Standards; Community and Site Planning; Renewable Energy; The Building Enclosure; Energy-Efficient Equipment and Systems; Efficient Water Use; Indoor Environmental Quality; Materials; Hazard Resistance; Operation and Maintenance; and Special Considerations for Retrofits, the document contains a dozen case studies and more than 40 figures.

The Guidelines are also available in print and, for the first time, as a Kindle book on Amazon.com.
