ASHRAE makes guidance on green buildings easily accessible in e-book format

ASHRAE has published its first ever eBook for use on the Apple iPad.

The third and latest edition of ASHRAE GreenGuide: The Design, Construction and Operation of Sustainable Buildingsis now available in an eBook format to allow iPad users convenient access to the book’s guidance, which covers each stage of the building process, from planning to operation and maintenance of a facility, with emphasis on teamwork and close coordination among interested parties. The eBook follows ASHRAE’s latest mobile apps on duct fitting databases and Standard 62.1, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality.

The GreenGuideeBook includes embedded links to other sections of the book and to graphics and relevant web pages.

“We want people to have access to ASHRAE guidance wherever they are, without having to carry around a hardback book,” Sheila Hayter, chair of the organization’s Publishing and Education Council, said. “With the release of GreenGuideeBook, detailed information on the design of high performance buildings is as close as one keeps their iPad.”

The GreenGuide eBook is available as a download in Apple’s iBooks store for $39.99 and requires the iBooks app.
