Reducing Toxic Chemicals in Buildings



The Scottish Ecological Design Association (SEDA) have just published 'Design and detailing for toxic chemical reduction in buildings', the third in a series of online and downloadable design guides. It sets out the context and principles of designing for toxic chemical reduction, and shows five typical construction details together with alternatives which optimise the potential for each to exploit toxic chemical reduction techniques. Explanations and costs are included.
