Green, environmentally-conscious construction is the driving force behind many new construction projects today. Are you prepared? BUILDING CODE BASICS: GREEN will get you there. The book is a practical guide to green and sustainable construction that is centered around the International Green Construction Code (IgCC), a comprehensive set of requirements that aims to reduce the negative impact of commercial buildings on the natural environment. Designed to appeal to anyone with an interest in green and sustainable construction, it introduces the mandatory provisions of the IgCC, while also extending its scope to tackle project electives and jurisdictional requirements, designed to promote the construction of buildings beyond the code's minimum requirements to higher performance thresholds in the areas of material resrouce efficiency, energy, water conservation, indoor environement, and natural resource conservation. Content includes topics shared by the IgCC and other green and sustainable standards and rating systems, such as the State of California Green Building Standards Code (CalGreen), the United States Green Building Council's (USGBC) LEED rating system, Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) LEED Canada NC, and Green Globes, administered by the Green Building Initiative (GBI). Comprehensive yet concise, this is an ideal resource for establishing a strong foundational knowledge of green construction practices.
