Aimed at architects, contractors, engineers and specialists in the field, this book uses real-world evidence from a Technology Strategy Board-funded research project to develop a set of tools for architects and other building designers to meet a growing need to anticipate future climate change. Built on in his seminal future climate change report for the TSB, Bill Gething (with Katie Puckett) identifies three broad categories of climate change impacts on building design - comfort and energy performance, construction, and managing water.
