LIMITS OF ACCURACY
Where all efforts have been made to ensure reasonable accuracy in the development of the drawings, diagrams and mathematical based analysis of these projects, the Carbon Neutral Design Project team does not warrant the information. A large portion of the research work has been carried out by student teams. The case studies are intended only to provide instructional reference, to assist others in developing carbon neutral design methods, and are not to be duplicated. The environmental suitability and successes of each project are limited to a specific climate zone, program and client based parameters.
The case studies are intended to be used to assist others in both understanding and further developing more detailed strategies to achieve carbon neutrality in their own design projects.

IMPORTANT: THIS SITE IS A WORK IN PROGRESS - COMPLETION SCHEDULED FOR SUMMER 2012
The Carbon Neutral Curriculum Materials Project is a joint research effort between members of the Society of Building Science Educators (www.sbse.org), the American Institute of Architects (www.aia.org), and a private donor, the purpose of which is to provide practitioners, faculty and students with the means to meet the 2030 Challenge (www.architecture2030.org)- that is, to be able to design and construct buildings to a state of carbon neutrality by the year 2030. The work included in this web resource is the result of a committed effort from educators and practitioners and is an attempt to begin to define a working methodology for Carbon Neutral Design that will be of general benefit to the profession. IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, A BEGINNING. There are pieces of the site that are incomplete at present. These will be filled in over the next few months. The Carbon Neutral Design Metrics are evolving. A CND Spreadsheet Tool is forthcoming. Please check back periodically for more content.
