About this book

Introduction

Maximizing reader insights into the strategic value of mass retrofits in the residential property sector through a detailed case study analysis of the ‘Hackbridge project’, this book uses this development to broaden understanding of how planners may perform urban regeneration in accordance with a centralized plan.

This book demonstrates how urban morphology matters, not only with respect to either the geometry of  design and construction systems, or occupational behaviours, but with regards to the potential with which the planning, (re)development, design, construction, use and occupation of buildings, has to not only lower levels of energy consumption and rates of carbon emission, but also to reduce global warming associated with climate change.

Delivering a critique of the state-of-the-art on urban morphology, the geometry of design typologies, construction systems and occupational behaviours and armed with the critical insights this offers, this book offers a context-specific analysis of how institutions can begin to actively plan for, integrate and sustain the development of energy efficient-low carbon zones.
