Product Overview

Real-world case studies teach how to build to LEED standards

"The Green Building Bottom Line" chronicles building projects designed to meet LEED codes, from planning to completion, to provide you with actual costs and personal experiences of the building professionals involved.

Every aspect is covered, from the economic values of "green" building to original investment decisions to design and construction. You will learn how to secure favorable financing; coordinate with architects, general contractors, and subcontractors; create a marketing plan for your project; and negotiate the "green" elements of a lease with prospective tenants. Legal issues involved in building to LEED standards are also covered.

Case studies range from the renovation of a National Historic Register property to the country''s first allretail LEED core and shell project. This candid, behindthe- scenes look at building "green" reveals a wealth of valuable facts and insight readers will find nowhere else.
