Green Development: Integrating Ecology and Real Estate
Green Development: Integrating Ecology and Real Estate describes a field in land development in which environmental considerations are viewed as opportunities to create fundamentally better buildings and communities - more comfortable, more efficient, more appealing and ultimately more profitable. Every stage of the development process is examined in detail including market research, site planning, design, approvals, financing, construction, marketing and occupancy. Also includes lists of project statistics and contacts, books and other information sources, as well as development strategies. The book is based on 80 case studies drawn from Rocky Mountain Institute's extensive worldwide research and consulting work and presents proven procedures and practical lessons that work in the real world.
