Christian Puls's Green Buildings: Nachhaltiges Bauen auf dem deutschen und PDF

By Christian Puls

Ein eco-friendly development ist eine Immobilie, welche die Reduktion des Einflusses auf Umwelt und menschliche Gesundheit zum Ziel hat. eco-friendly constructions werden entworfen, um Strom und Wasser einzusparen und um damaging Auswirkungen auf Mensch und Umwelt über den gesamten Lebenszyklus zu minimieren. Dieses Buch analysiert aus Sicht des deutschen und amerikanischen Gewerbeimmobilienmarkts die Faktoren, welche die eco-friendly Building-Bewegung derzeit vorantreiben. Es verdeutlicht an praktischen Beispielen, wie sich Investitionen in nachhaltige Gebäude rechnen und gibt einen Überblick über die angewandten Techniken. Weiterhin wird darüber aufgeklärt, welche Vorschriften und Zertifikate das nachhaltige Bauen in der BRD und den united states bestimmen und auszeichnen. Besonderes Augenmerk liegt hierbei auf der Rolle des amerikanischen Zertifikats für "Leadership in strength and Environmental layout" (LEED) sowie des Zertifikats der Deutschen Gesellschaft für nachhaltiges Bauen. Abschließend gibt eine Umfrage unter Experten Einblicke in die derzeit vorherrschenden Meinungen über eco-friendly constructions und zeigt mögliche Potenziale dieser Bewegung auf.

Read e-book online Structural Design in Building Conservation PDF

By Dimitris Theodossopoulos

No development is correctly conserved whether it is no longer structurally sound. for this reason architects, engineers and conservation officials desire an sufficient grounding within the know-how, the fabrics and the historical origins of the construction with the intention to whole a conservation undertaking successfully.


Structural layout in construction Conservation bargains with layout matters and technical offerings, displaying how they're built-in with the making plans and architectural results in a conservation venture. It brings jointly idea with present conservation know-how, discussing the probabilities of structural information and methods in architectural expression. Case reviews are critical to this, and those are organised round such subject matters because the addition of roofs, requalification of area, strengthening and re-use of material, repristination, additions, completions, stiffness alterations, and the correction of prior errors. The reader is inspired to ascertain the technical info of those actual initiatives, and discover the potential solutions.


The philosophy of structural interventions is brought within the context of conservation theories and practices in quite a few ecu nations. the most different types of strengthening, upkeep and interventions are defined utilizing diversified development kinds, and the structural nature of the most parts to be bolstered (linear constructions, frames, plates and shells) is explored in detail.


Case experiences integrated disguise a really wide selection of ancient varieties and conversions, not just enormous masonry buildings like neoclassical constructions, significant temples, church buildings, public structures and museums, but in addition extra utilitarian constructions like historical generators, early bolstered concrete constructions and vaulting types.


This is key examining for all scholars of architectural conservation, and working towards architects and engineers who're excited by conservation initiatives.
