This desk study reviews published research and implementation activities and identifies the remaining key environmental issues in construction. In particular, it reports on progress made by the construction and related industries in responding to environmental issues over recent years, and identifies the gaps in knowledge and areas that require further action by the industry. The book looks at the following main areas of environmental concern: sustainable development, CO2 emissions, human productivity in buildings, resource use and recycling, water conservation, renewable resource issues, contaminated land, groundwater contamination and impact on the local environment. This should be of interest to clients, developers, planners, contractors, government, local authorities and regulatory bodies.
