Using the latest version 3.0 of U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system and other tools, Charles Kibert explains the best practices in building procurement and delivery systems.  From materials selection to considering the use of natural systems for wastewater processing, this comprehensive text covers all of the factors involved with sustainable construction. In a clear and accessible writing style, Dr. Kibert addresses issues so that the reader can think critically and independently as part of the cutting edge in green building. The Third Edition includes new coverage of Carbon Neutral Design and Carbon Accounting. A must for the builder/owner and production manager looking to take advantage of the opportunities in this rapidly evolving field, the designer looking to be LEED certified, or anyone interested in sustainability.
