Sustainable Housing Projects

Implementing a Conceptual Approach

Techne Press

Due to exhaustible resources, large urban developments, and the current attention given to climate issues, sustainable building is back on the agenda. This goes for governments in both well-developed countries like France, Spain, the United States, and the United Kingdom, as well as in rapidly developing countries like China, the Eastern European countries, Middle Eastern, Latin American, and South Asian countries.

Sustainable Housing Projects takes a wide, conceptual approach for sustainably built projects, which allows an integrated approach to the various stakes and stakeholders. Such an approach is particularly suitable for a medium scale level, involving neighborhood development, and a number of examples on this scale level are included.

The compact, practical tone, the many color illustrations, tables, and boxes, make the book an accessible and practical read.

Ronald Rovers is associate professor at Wageningen University. He also trains professionals and government employees on sustainable housing.
