The first textbook in sustainable construction bringing together the whole range of topics from planning through to facilities management in an accessible and engaging way, and complete with illustrations and photographs. Written by experts and including real-world case studies, this book can be used as a core text or across several modules.  The book begins with planning issues, after which each chapter charts the different stages of the construction process through to refurbishment of existing buildings.

This textbook is aimed at undergraduate Built Environment and Construction students or pre-degree HND/FD students in Architectural Technology and Architecture, Building Surveying, General Practice Surveying, Urban Planning, Property Management, Quantity Surveying, Construction Management, Facilities Management and general programmes focussed on the environment.  It will also be of interest to professionals working for construction and property companies as there are so few resources that give a complete overview of sustainability in construction.
