In the newly revised Fifth Edition of Sustainable Construction: Green Building Design and Delivery, the late Dr. Charles J. Kibert delivers a rigorous overview of the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. In the leading textbook on sustainable building, the author provides thoroughly updated information on everything from materials selection to building systems.

Updated to reflect the latest building codes and standards, including LEED v4.1, the book offers readers coverage of international green building codes and standards, biomimicry, ecological design, focused assessment systems like SITES, EDGE, WELL, and Fitwell, and sustainable construction resilience. Readers will learn to think critically about all aspects of green building and benefit from the inclusion of:

  • In-depth examinations of high-performance green building assessment, including focused assessment systems and international building assessment systems
