Article Preview

The global environment is deteriorating gradually after the middle of the twenty century, the global aims at sustainable developments and positively research related policies and programs. SBTOOL is frequently referred to as the research tool of case assessment by many countries in International Conferences of sustainable development; SBTOOL is recognized internationally as assessment tool contributable to the development of sustainable buildings in various regions due to its elastic adjustment. Thus this study uses SBTOOL to access the relevance between EEWH and the results of assessment on the examples by SBTOOL based on 10 examples of the residence buildings granted as Taiwan Qualified Green Buildings, analysis the influence of the “Duplex and Single-family Houses” and “Architectural Floors” on the result of the assessment to provide reference for the international integration of Taiwan sustainable buildings.
