Sustainable Infrastructure: Principles into Practice

Description

"The authors draw on their own experiences both in championing change within their organisations and also amongst peers in other organisations... There is little doubt that this will be a helpful reference for students, new entrants and practitioners." - The Environmentalist, August 2014

Sustainable Infrastructure: Principles into Practice is a practical and accessible handbook which addresses the key principles of sustainability for engineers and built environment professionals. It outlines the critical changes needed to deliver more sustainable solutions and offers techniques to embed these changes as best practice in order to deliver high quality, economical and sustainable infrastructure across the globe.

With many years of engineering knowledge and practical experience between them, the authors identify key sustainability issues in engineering and a set of common principles which can be applied across all types of infrastructure at each stage of a project, from planning and development through to the implementation, in-use and end-of-life phases. The book provides readers with a set of tools to help define, test and measure sustainability, encouraging them to be champions of change and take full advantage of sustainable opportunities.

Sustainable Infrastructure: Principles into Practice provides readers with:

• A comprehensive set of fundamental principles and tools to guide engineering decision making for sustainable infrastructure delivery 
• Real life case studies and practical examples from across the world, including the UK, Europe, Africa and the USA
• An understanding of the concepts and current debates around the need for sustainability
• Advice on what questions to ask and when at each stage of project delivery

Sustainable Infrastructure: Principles into Practice serves as an introduction to subsequent volumes in the Delivering Sustainable Infrastructure series which apply these principles to sector-specific contexts, including water, transport and buildings.
