Sandy Halliday


Sustainable Construction

2nd Edition

Sandy Halliday received ‘Professor Sandy Halliday’s Sustainable Construction, Second Edition is a robust examination of a vast set of issues that are especially important to today's construction practices. Her work takes on the social and political climate as well as the practice of building sustainably. To consider passive design strategies foremost is the guiding principle of the book—mechanical systems and alternative energy devices are considered back ups that can be reduced in size and expense by the effective use of passive strategies. The text is thoroughly illustrated with case study examples and images and illustrations. Both historic and contemporary issues and examples are presented. It's a tour de force in sustainable construction instruction.’
