July 1, 2011: ASHRAE Makes Guidance on Green Buildings Available in eBook Format

ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has published its first eBook for use on the Apple iPad. The third and latest edition of ASHRAE GreenGuide: The Design, Construction and Operation of Sustainable Buildings is now available in an eBook format to provide iPad users with 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 GreenGuide eBook includes embedded links to other sections of the book and to graphics and relevant web pages. The eBook follows ASHRAE’s latest mobile apps on duct fitting databases and Standard 62.1, Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality.

“We want people to have access to ASHRAE guidance wherever they are, without having to carry around a hardback book,” said Sheila Hayter, chair of the organization’s Publishing and Education Council. “With the release of GreenGuide eBook, 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.
