About this book
Describes the environmental impacts from global factors such as ozone depletion to the quality of the environment within property. Each chapter is written by a specialist and the topics covered range from site contamination to the environmental consequences of selecting particular building materials; from environmental law to the need for energy efficiency. The book is structured to allow anyone with an interest in property - student, practitioner, or user - to consider such environmental impacts and take appropriate action, whether this is an audit of an existing building, setting the criteria for a development scheme or establishing an environmental policy for a property portfolio.
