Sustainable Construction book is available!

John Wiley & Sons, Inc. is now publishing Sustainable Construction: Green Building Design and Delivery and it is available through Wiley,, and a wide variety of other outlets.

A companion website for the book containing a sample syllabus, teaching strategies, and other information is at Instructors can contact their John Wiley representative to obtain a desk copy and access to the site. To find your Wiley representative, go to, click on the button at left that says FIND THE RIGHT TITLE FOR YOUR COLLEGE COURSE and then click on the WHO'S MY REP link at the top of the Wiley Higher Education site, in order to get contact information about your rep.

If you are teaching or intending to teach a course about green building design and delivery, please feel free to send me materials to post to the website. I have a fairly deep library of papers related to green building written by my students over the past ten years and am considering posting these to illustrate the types of issues they have tackled, sometimes with remarkable results! If you would like to post student work and projects on this site, please let me know. I hope to develop a resource base for teaching green building courses that will permit instructors to focus on the creative aspects of teaching.

There is also a student website at same location as the instructor site. The student site contains useful information such as the various websites mentioned in the Notes and References of Sustainable Construction. These are all hyperlinked for easy use and access for both instructor and student versions of the companion site.

Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated!
