You're overseeing a large-scale project, but you're not an engineering or construction specialist, and so you need an overview of the related sustainability concerns and processes. To introduce you to the main issues, experts from the fields of engineering, planning, public health, environmental design, architecture, and landscape architecture review current sustainable large-scale projects, the roles team members hold, and design approaches, including alternative development and financing structures. They also discuss the challenges and opportunities of sustainability within infrastructural systems, such as those for energy, water, and waste, so that you know what's possible. And best of all, they present here for the first time the Zofnass Environmental Evaluation Methodology guidelines, which will help you and your team improve infrastructure design, engineering, and construction.

Review:

"This book is brilliantly conceived and well needed internationally. Up to now the focus has been on individual sustainable building – a book of this scope dealing with the infrastructure on which most of them will depend for the foreseeable future is long overdue."George Baird, Professor, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

"This book is a comprehensive guide to the unique challenges associated with planning, design, construction, operation, and eventual decommissioning of the complex infrastructure systems that are essential to sustaining civilization. It is a useful reference for industry professionals and government officials, as well as a valuable framework for continued academic research."Thomas Vautin, Associate Vice President for Facilities and Environmental Services, Harvard University, USA
