Guidelines To Integrate Energy Conservation

ByMarc Blake, Spyros Amourgis

This chapter presents a summary of key issues regarding environmental conditions and energy conservation of urban buildings. While each issue is dealt with in greater depth in other chapters, the merits of a comprehensive approach and utilization of all options available to the designer are discussed here as guidelines. As conditions vary from site to site and from one building function to another, it is up to the ingenuity of the designer to address all issues and factors and to resolve then through the building design.
