Sustainable Retrofitting of Commercial Buildings (September 2012)
Despite recent improvements in energy efficiency being made in new build, it is important that the existing commercial building sector also take action to meet emission reduction targets. The objectives and challenges of such action will reduce the risk of the sector becoming obsolete due to high energy use and poor environmental performance.
Sustainable Retrofitting of Commercial Buildings presents a theory-based, practice-support methodology to deal with sustainable retrofitting opportunities for existing commercial buildings in warm climates using bioclimatic design as the basis. This book is a must-have guide for all involved in the design and engineering of retrofitting projects in warm climates.
