From the Publisher'An incisive book that provides practical strategies and tactics for sustainable refurbishment, literally from the ground up. Richly illustrated with informative diagrams, supported by accessible quantitative analysis, and reinforced by detailed case study examples, this book is a triumph.'

'Nick Baker tackles head on what many eminent scientists in Cambridge regard as most pressing contemporary problems, the sustainable refurbishment of the existing building stock, much of which is going to be with us still in 2050. Dr. Baker delivers his profound understanding of these difficult issues in a wholly intelligible and compelling way. I cannot commend this book to my profession and its patrons highly enough.'
