The book offers peer-to-peer insights and advice from leading practitioners in this field who have worked with specific technologies. The book will not be official, technical guidance, rather a book which readers can dip into when they are about to take on a project of this type. They will find practical advice on preparing for such projects; important points to note and common pitfalls to avoid. The book is based on interviews with practitioners who have hands-on experience of each technology and who therefore have unique insight into the particular challenges for contractors and installers working to deliver sustainable building projects. There is a lot of guidance on sustainable buildings available from reputable sources including BRE, CIBSE, HVCA, ECA and BSRIA. This book is different in that it speaks directly to contractors, with messages from their fellow professionals who have deal with real on-site challenges and who can offer practical advice based on experience. Many contractors are now faced with a business choice of offering services related to microgeneration/renewables and they must decide what technologies might be suitable for their businesses, and consider what level of training is required before they/their employees can start to work with these technologies. Delivering sustainable buildings will help specialist contractors and facilities managers understand sustainable buildings at the strategic level (legislation, finance, training) and then to offer practical advice on various aspects of sustainable buildings (water use, energy efficient air conditioning, commissioning) to their clients.
