No longer is green ideology just an extravagance put for­ward by radical ecologists. The acts and directives en­forced by the European Union leave the governments of particular countries no other choice as to follow a low energy and environmentally friendly policy.

The consequence of the above is a dynamic development of sustainable construction, not only in the sector of commercial buildings. Additionally, more and more conscious tenants are demanding investments which will ensure lower operating costs and a friendly working environment. 

To increase the profits of sustainable construction, certifying organizations have introduced new assessment systems, making the requirements even more strict.

This issue is the main focus of the newest edition of Vade mecum, which we now deliver to your hands. Here, we present the newest version of the certificates, implemented in 2013: BREEAM International New Construction 2013 and LEEDv4, with a description of all the groups of issues that they include and a comment on the introduced changes.

We hope that this edition of Vade mecum Green Buildings — Points versus Valuation will contribute to improving your knowl­edge about sustainable construction and that it will make the task easier for all those who intend to certify their developments in the new versions of the certifying systems.

We wish you an enjoyable reading,

The e-biurowce.pl team
