Green Building Guide Now Available
December 15, 2006

ASHRAE GreenGuide: The Design, Construction and Operation of Sustainable Buildings will help teach designers how to participate effectively on design teams charged with producing green buildings.

The book, an update to the 2003 version of ASHRAE GreenGuide, contains a new chapter outlining guidance on the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEEDâ„¢) Rating System developed by the U.S. Green Building Council. The chapter discusses ways in which LEED credits affect engineers and how they can best respond to the opportunities presented by the use of LEED on projects.

The book also contains a new chapter on how HVAC&R systems interact with the local environment and methods for mitigating or reducing that impact.

The ASHRAE GreenGuide also contains more than 40 GreenTips, which are sidebars containing information on techniques, processes, measures or systems. The tips contain a list of other sources for reference. To read the GreenTips, visit www.engineeringforsustainability.org.

This is the first in a new series of books, known as The ASHRAE Professional Series, published in cooperation with Butterworth-Heinemann/Elsevier. The series is intended to provide high-quality professional information for a global audience of HVAC&R engineers as well as professionals in related fields.

The cost of the ASHRAE GreenGuide is $79.95 ($62.95, ASHRAE members). For more info visit www.ashrae.org.
