Description
Sponsored by the Sustainability Committee of the Structural Engineering Institute of ASCE.

This report presents guidelines that are intended to advance the understanding of sustainability in the structural community and to incorporate concepts of sustainability into structural engineering standards and practices. The guidelines are organized into five sections:

  • Sustainable Design and Construction,
  • Sustainable Strategies,
  • Building Materials,
  • Infrastructure, and
  • Case Studies.

Although many of the subjects are related, each section—and the related subsections—have been written to stand alone, allowing this report to be used as a practical reference. Infrastructure gets particular attention because many of the concepts and ideas in this guide that relate to infrastructure can also be applied to design and construction.

This report was written for structural engineers, but related disciplines will also benefit from the contents. This book will help structural engineers as they meet the challenge to design and construct a sustainable built environment
