Description

Sustainability is a key issue and its impact on the construction industry, as one of the major users of the Earth's resources, is starting to take hold.

This book deals with sustainability as it affects the construction industry, looking at the techniques and issues which designers, engineers, planners and construction managers will have to deal with in their day-to-day activities.

It covers methods of analysis such as environmental impact assessment and cost-benefit analysis as well as topics on design and energy regulation and conservation.

The book is an excellent primer for those in the construction industry who already have an interest in ecologically sustainable development and also for those who need to begin raising awareness in this area.
