    As an Architect with 30 years experience in both Commercial and Residential Design & Construction, I purchased this book to upgrade my knowledge of the New Net Zero technologies. I found this book to be extremely informative for the EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL who can read and understand construction drawings. The book describes the new technology for both small commercial building and single family homes by the use of project photographs, floor plans,wall sections and details that are both clearly depicted and very informative. The projects are primarily designed for Cold Climates in Maine and Vermont but would apply certainly to the Midwest where I live and practice.

    This book is NOT written for the weekend DIY builder but for experienced Architects, Builders and Contractors. Highly recommend it!!!

    If you’re seriously interested in building or owning a new structure that at least approaches “Net-Zero”, this is the book for you. It takes you through life styles, costs, heat loss, HVAC and controls, construction details and architectural teams – all in readable, easy to comprehend language. The science behind the imperative to combat climate change is explained, as well. This is not a fast read, but it’s organized for easy reference and has great photos. It’s a must for today’s builders, architects and “building-owners-to-be”.

    As a veteran Builder with 41 years in the industry, I have found this book detailed, thorough, beautiful and inspiring. The building sections and analysis are clear and balenced, and the presentation of everything from the math and science to the art and trades is comprehensive. I recommend this for those seeking a deep look, starting out, taking the pulse of progress, and those lookign for refreshment and updating: architcts, planners, builders, developers, instituitonal managers.
