The Green Building Bottom Line:
The Real Cost of Sustainable Building
editors: Martin Melaver; Phyllis Mueller
Editor Martin Melaver, CEO of developer Melaver, Inc., traces the roots of this book to the 2005 Greenbuild conference, where he and seven colleagues presented the lessons learned from their green retail development, Abercorn Commons. The green building industry is still hungry for those lessons, particularly financial payback information and marketing experiences.
Melaver and Mueller have collected ten chapters on these subjects, relying on experts in various fields to present information in a clear manner. These chapters cover everything from financing and marketing to human resources practices. Although the book is not pretty—the layout is more utilitarian than aesthetic—it is certainly useful, and well worth a place on most bookshelves.
