A Beginner’s Handbook to LEED Green Building Design and Construction Guidelines

At 274 pages long, the LEED Green Building Design and Construction Guide can be intimidating and cumbersome to approach. While very thorough in its review of sustainable construction practices, it can at times be too technical for those new to the realm of sustainable construction.

Designed to help architects, engineers, construction professionals and facility owners more easily grasp LEED sustainability principles, this Beginner’s Handbook reviews the highlights from each of the nine LEED guidelines and points out where they might prove valuable. The goal is to bring the main objective of each criteria to the forefront – adding practical recommendations where applicable.
