Green Building - Codes and Standards
Abstract: Understanding requirements of building codes is an early step in designing and constructing a green building. Going "beyond code" opens opportunities for adding more value to the building. Certification and rating systems provide credible frameworks and standards to guide developers, architects and contractors who want to go beyond code. There is also valuable information on writing contracts for green building.
