Guest More than 1 year ago
As a senior vice president and firmwide sustainable design director at HOK, Mary Ann Lazarus combined her expertise with the professional experience of the other two design principals and leaders of sustainable design at HOK, Sandra F. Mendler and William Odell, in 'The HOK Guidebook to Sustainable Design.' 'The HOK Guidebook to Sustainable Design' is one of the most comprehensive books on LEED and sustainable design. It is not a LEED AP exam prep book. It is a book to assist you in doing actual sustainable design. It covers checklists of actions and how-to information arranged by the LEED® categories (SS: sustainable sites, WE: water efficiency, EA: energy & atmosphere, MR: materials & resources, and EQ: indoor environmental quality), 'Ten Key Steps' for the design process, specific guidance for sustainable design per building type, and 18 useful case studies from HOK's real projects. 'The HOK Guidebook to Sustainable Design' has 480 pages and many color interior photos. It is a must-have for design professionals and one of the best books on LEED and green building design.
