Sustainability and Construction: The Global Context and the New Zealand Perspective explores various facets of construction, from inception, through operationalization, and end-of-life management from the perspective of practice-driven sustainability. After an introductory chapter laying the foundations for the sustainability concept and another one relating sustainability to the corporate environment, the volume then delves into the various phases of a construction project to examine related sustainability issues with exemplifying case studies that illustrate the state-of-the-art worldwide.

The authors’ unique treatment of the overarching themes impacting sustainability in the global construction industry and how these intersect in their local context (i.e., New Zealand) ultimately allows them to offer a well-balanced and thorough reference that proves to be a value-added, highly visual resource for professional engineers, students and researchers, policymakers, and various industry stakeholders.
