↠´ The New Net Zero: Leading-Edge Design and Construction of Homes and Buildings for a Renewable Energy Future Î Download by ✓ Bill Maclay Well written with very valuable and useful information in the book Good index to content Detailed plans, drawings and illustrations Highly recommended for anyone considering a project of this kind.
As an Architect with 30 years experience in both Commercial and Residential Design Construction, I purchased this book to upgrade my knowledge of the New Net Zero technologies I found this book to be extremely informative for the EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL who can read and understand construction drawings The book describes the new technology for both small commercial building and single family homes by the use of project photographs, floor plans,wall sections and details that are both clearly depicted and very informative The projects are primarily designed for Cold Climates in Maine and Vermont but would apply certainly to the Midwest where I live and practice.
This book is NOT written for the weekend DIY builder but for experienced Architects, Builders and Contractors Highly recommend it GREAT book Very in depth.
I have written books on building technology, and purchase many I have also been involved in a number of netzero energy house and small commericial building projects through different climate zones This is one of the most complete, applied, practical and technically competent book I have seen There are not many books that show the details of the roof, walls, windows etc with sufficient detail for a competent professional to design a real building I like the drawing format, the example projects are a testament to the experience behind the book.
As a veteran Builder with 41 years in the industry, I have found this book detailed, thorough, beautiful and inspiring The building sections and analysis are clear and balenced, and the presentation of everything from the math and science to the art and trades is comprehensive I recommend this for those seeking a deep look, starting out, taking the pulse of progress, and those lookign for refreshment and updating architcts, planners, builders, developers, instituitonal managers Jonathan A Wright Northampton, MA
Most of the book is centered around case studies Beautiful diagrams and photography are coupled with cold, hard data and provide a great foundation for educating yourself on energy efficient home building strategies.
I especially like the author s acknowledgment that ROI is important Just because you can do net zero doesn t mean it s awesome cost effective There is a balance.
This is a great book for established builders and architects, as well as laypeople just interested in the field.
Had this book as class text Easy read Great examples Should be updated for newly developed materials.
