Greening Existing Buildings
This concise and fact-filled guide provides a roadmap for upgrading the energy and environmental performance of existing buildings.

With more than 25 case studies and interviews with building owners, managers and industry experts, Jerry Yudelson's latest book weaves narratives, best practices and summaries of proven technologies and operating methods into an easy-to-read compendium.

"Greening Existing Buildings" also provides an overview of green rating systems and standards such as the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (LEED-EBOM), LEED-Canada, the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) in the United Kingdom and Green Star in Australia, among others.
