Adopted in the United States and a number of other countries, LEED certification is the recognized standard for measuring building sustainability. Achieving LEED personal certification or project certification is the best way to demonstrate that the project is truly "green." Written by an architect with over 30 years of international experience, this book provides architects, designers, building owners, and construction engineers with an easy to understand guide to the nuts and bolts of LEED project and personal certification. Written in plain and easy to understand language, this ?hands on? book is designed to assist readers with all aspects of LEED certification. The handbook follows the rigorous third-party commissioning process, beginning with basic LEED concepts, and then carefully explains LEED documentation and technical requirements along with its standards, professional accreditation, and codes. The handbook provides readers with design strategies for sustainable site selection, and design process for high performance building and commissioning. Other important topics include green materials and products selection as well as strategies for ensuring Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ), water efficiency and sanitary waste disposal. This handbook also offers readers a multitude of forms with expert guidance for their completion. Clear and authoritative in scope, LEED Practices and Accreditation Handbook provides architects, builders/owners, construction managers, and engineers with a reference that will help them to offer their clients, peers, and the public at large compelling proof that they have achieved their projects environmental goals and that the building is performing as designed. Instruction for completing LEED checklist and forms Detailed explanation of the third-party commissioning process Explains LEED documentation & technical requirements Topics include green materials and products selection

These are the proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Engineering Sciences and Technologies (ESaT 2018), held from 12th - 14th September 2018 in the High Tatras Mountains, Tatranské Matliare, Slovak Republic. ESaT 2018 was organized under the auspices of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Technical University of Košice - Slovak Republic in collaboration with Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University - Russia after the successful organization with excellent feedback of the previous international conferences ESaT 2015 and ESaT 2016. The proceedings is covering various topics and disciplines in civil engineering sciences, such as Buildings and Architectural Engineering, Bearing Structures, Material and Environmental Engineering, Construction Technology and Management, Building Physics and Facilities, Geodesy, Surveying and Mapping, Geotechnics and Traffic Engineering. The proceedings report on new and original progress and trends in various fields of engineering sciences that will be of interest to a wide range of academics and professionals from university and industry. 116 papers originating from more than 10 countries have been accepted for publication in the conference proceedings. Each accepted paper was reviewed by two reviewers, selected according to the scientific area and orientation of the paper, which guarantees topicality, quality and an advanced level of the presented results.

Nature has provided opportunities for scientists to observe patterns in biomaterials which can be imitated when designing construction materials. Materials designed with natural elements can be robust and environment friendly at the same time. Advances in our understanding of biology and materials science coupled with the extensive observation of nature have stimulated the search for better accommodation/compression of materials and the higher organization/reduction of mechanical stress in man-made structures. Bio-Inspired Materials is a collection of topics that explore frontiers in 3 sections of bio-inspired design: (i) bionics design, (ii) bio-inspired construction, and (iii) bio-materials. Chapters in each section address the most recent advances in our knowledge about the desired and expected relationship between humans and nature and its use in bio-inspired buildings. Readers will also be introduced to new concepts relevant to bionics, biomimicry, and biomimetics. Section (i) presents research concepts based on information gained from the direct observation of nature and its applications for human living. Section (ii) is devoted to ‘artificial construction’ of the Earth. This section addresses issues on geopolymers, materials that resemble the structure of soils and natural rocks; procedures that reduce damage caused by earthquakes in natural construction, the development of products from vegetable resins and construction principles using bamboo. The last section takes a look into the future towards the improvement of human living conditions. Bio-Inspired Materials offers readers - having a background in architecture, civil engineering and systems biology - a new perspective about sustainable building which is a key part of addressing the environmental concerns of current times.
