Contractor's Guide to LEED Certified Construction
is the consummate source of LEED information for anyone in or
entering the construction industry.
Unlike other LEED books that focus on the totality
of LEED compliance, this one-of-a-kind resource focuses on the
narrower topic of construction-related requirements. It offers
detailed explanations of the rational for each construction credit,
as well as strategies for achieving LEED compliance.
With a clear, logical organization, the book will
serve as a valuable constructor reference at the beginning of a
project, as well as a useful step-by-step guide through the duration
of the project.
