Title: Advanced Buildings: Technologies and Practices
Url: http://www.advancedbuildings.org/
Publisher: Canada. Natural Resources Canada
Description: Thermally broken balconies, Low-nox burners, greywater recycling, and indoor air biofilters are just a few of the aspects of energy-efficient building technologies found at this Website from Natural Resources Canada. Here users will find a well-organized index of topics subdivided into pages featuring descriptions, benefits and limitations, costs, building uses, and development statuses of 90 building technologies. Most pages contain color images and schematics of the technological design and links to related experts and industries for each technology. Also featured is an informative case study that takes an in-depth look at the technology and construction of Canada's first building built to meet the requirements of the C-2000 program (described at the site). A boolean-type search engine and links page are also provided. This is an excellent resource for engineers, architects, and builders concerned with designing and producing energy-efficient, waste- and water-reducing "smart" buildings.
