'What Colour is your Building?: Measuring and reducing the energy and carbon footprint of buildings'
David Clark, Partner at Cundall authored 'What Colour is your Building?' in 2013. Already garnering high-praise from luminaries within the construction and architecture industries, ‘What Colour is your Building?’ is an essential title for all those interested in determining and responding to the true costs of a building’s carbon footprint.
The result of many years’ analysis and design of low-energy buildings, it comes in two sections. In the first, author David Clark focuses on how to measure and benchmark the CO2 emissions caused by the operating, embodied and transport energy consumption associated with commercial buildings and the people that use them. The second part of the book provides clear, practical guidance to developers, planners, architects, engineers, building owners, facility managers, and tenants on how to reduce the whole carbon footprint.
