Greening Your Building
A toolkit for improving asset performance
“Greening Your Building, A Toolkit for Improving Asset Performance” is a guide for building owners and facility managers. It contains over 70 management, maintenance and refurbishment initiatives designed to improve your building’s environmental performance and at the same time reduce operating costs.
“Included in the toolkit is a summary of each initiative with information about potential benefits, risks, the process of implementation, payback periods and approximate costs as well as directions on where you can find more detailed information.
“The initiatives are also cross indexed by their Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) categories. These categories align with the Green Building Council of Australia’s Green Star categories, and allow users to easily identify the impact of each improvement.
“Whether you are retrofitting your entire building, considering cogeneration or trigeneration, replacing plant and equipment or perhaps simply looking for ways to incorporate green practises into your ongoing maintenance and management practises, this toolkit is for you.”
