Both professionals and students are increasingly committed to achieving high-performance metrics in the design, construction and operation of residential buildings. This book responds to this demand by offering a comprehensive guide. It discusses the requisite AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) knowledge needed when building a high-performance home, and communicates this information across four case studies, which provide the reader with a thorough overview of all aspects to be considered in the design and construction of sustainable homes.
