This book explores the concepts and practicalities that lead to sustainable construction. It breaks new ground by providing the reader with the underlying principles of how to build sustainably and then assesses many of the tools required for the task. From energy to materials and from procurement to operation, all aspects play their part in turning a theoretically sustainable building project into a reality. There are many guidelines for the designer on how to maximise the sustainability of buildings but this resource text supplements these by focusing on the construction and operational aspects of sustainable buildings, as well as some of the more fundamental design-related considerations.


· Offers an excellent text for those learning to construct, design and operate sustainable buildings.

· Covers the drivers for sustainable construction, definitions, historical impacts, climate change and global, regional and individual responses.

· enables the construction professional to achieve optimum solutions, both in design, process and the aftercare of buildings.

· evaluates the effectiveness of different renewable technologies and provides guidance on the practicalities of their use.

· Alerts the reader to future trends in this field.

From the Back Cover:

By following the process of sustainable construction from blueprint to completed building, this book takes in all the systems, processes, guidelines and standards negotiated along the journey. The author focuses on the practicalities of sustainable construction and how to make it work well, examining the roles of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and project managers to understand how their plans work - or dont - in practice. In this fast-moving field, the policies, facts, figures and assessment systems change with a remarkable rapidity. However, the underlying principles of how we build sustainability and the basic tools needed to do this remain relatively static.

Sustainable Construction Processes: a resource text introduces the rationale and history behind the drivers for sustainable construction. The text then follows the decision-making process for each stage of a building's life-cycle to illuminate the requirements and challenges of designing, constructing and occupying sustainable buildings. The reader is led through the areas of sustainable procurement, discussing how buildings can meet clients needs but also the broader needs of society and the environment, without costing us and our communities too much. The elements of building design related to energy, water and materials are examined to demonstrate how construction processes can ensure that our buildings are truly sustainable. Assessment systems are introduced and their basic underlying principles discussed. The challenge of anticipating the behaviours of occupants and the practicalities of building with some of the new sustainable technologies are considered. Finally, the author sets out potential areas of growth and offers some contrasting visions for the future of sustainability.

For students, this resource text offers an excellent base for learning how to construct, design and operate sustainable buildings. And for construction professionals, it helps achieve optimum solutions in the design, the process and the aftercare of buildings.

About the Author:

He has been teaching and researching in the area of sustainable construction for over 20 years.
