9780750651530: Sustainable Practices in the Built Environment

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 important introduction to the subject for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students. Given the importance and novelty of the subject, professionals in the construction industry will also find the book valuable.

About the Author:

Associate Professor: Construction Economics, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia

Review:

"This 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 their awareness in this area. I particularly like the way each chapter is structured internally....I particularly appreciate the easy-to-understand language used; the concise approach to complex topics that focus on the essence of the concepts presented." Dr Jorge Vanegas, School of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA
