Description
Green construction and environmentally sound building is more important today than ever before, and it's something everyone in or entering the construction industry should be able to understand and apply. As a result, the ICC 700-2008 National Green Building Standard® (NGBS®) and the referenced code sections in the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code® (IECC®) are two codes that are gaining in relevance, making the 2009 GREEN RESIDENTIAL BUILDING STUDY COMPANION more valuable than ever before. The focus of this handy guide is the ICC 700-2008 NGBS, the first national consensus-based and ANSI-approved standard that establishes minimum criteria and definitions for the design and construction of green residential buildings, sites, subdivisions, and renovations. Designed to provide the flexibility that allows the creation of innovative approaches and techniques, the standard never loses sight of critical safety, health, and environmental requirements set forth by other applicable laws, ordinances, or codes. With this safety-first yet environmentally-savvy mindset, the study guide examines select topics of this standard, offering readers the text of the standard itself, alongside insightful, application-based commentary and detailed illustrations.
