Sustainability and Construction explores various facets of sustainability in the construction domain. It commences with a comprehensive discourse on the concept of sustainability and its construction context. Sustainability in the various phases of a typical construction project is examined next, from inception, through operationalization, and end-of-life management, on the one hand; on the other, sustainability of construction through the lens of associated processes and domains such as supply chains, logistics, delivery models, and waste management is discussed. The scope of the narrative is extended through sustainability rating schemes, the Living Building Challenge epitomizing circularity, and the context of technology in making construction sustainable, as a natural follow-up. A strategic viewpoint is then presented through an integrated treatment of corporate sustainability, and its assessment, reporting, and benchmarking, against the backdrop of the sustainability imperative. Stakeholder perspectives and “wickedness” of sustainable construction in New Zealand conclude the work.The authors’ unique treatment of the overarching themes impacting sustainability in the global construction industry and their intersection with the local context (i.e., New Zealand) offers a well-balanced and thoroughly researched resource. It proves to be a value-added, highly visual text for engineers, students, researchers, policymakers, and various industry stakeholders alike.
