Gem! This book is packed with detailed information in a fun to read and 3D interactive format. Regardless of the reader's level of knowledge on this consequential subject, this book can serve as an introduction, review and reference. The ideas are presented clearly and completely. Professionals and lay persons alike can find use for the holistic concepts in the planning and construction of buildings of any scale, from single family homes to high rises. --Gretchen Ann Meili, Architect AIA, NCARB
I would recommend Being SUSTAINABLE especially as an effective visual reference for energy conserving and energy generating mechanical and electrical systems.
If the CD is anything like Building SIMPLE it will contain great animations and other SketchUp files to serve as a foundation for students in architecture and construction who are interested in understanding these systems visually. --Michael O'Brien, William E. Jamerson Professor of Building Construction, Virginia Tech
