About this title:

Synopsis: This volume contains the extended versions of selected papers presented at the first Mediterranean Conference "Sharing Knowledge on Sustainable Building" held at the Polytechnic ofBari in December 1999, supported by the National Research Council of Italy. The publication of this book was made possible through the efforts of the contributing Authors. Other people have provided invaluable support for the conference and for the preparation of this volume; in particular, I wish to thank Antonella Lerario for providing support in the final editing of the text and images. 1 As reported in Boonstra and Rovers (200 I) , people spend a great deal of time inside buildings; therefore, decisions about design, construction, use, maintenance, renovation, demolition, reuse and recycling of buildings have a huge impact on the sustainable development of our society. Technical aspects, however, should be supported by adequate policies, developed with appropriate tools and driven by meaningful challenges. For people involved in sustainable buildings, the conceptual frameworks, studies and experiences collected in this volume, organized into three parts - "Policies", "Tools" and "Challenges" - will help to advance knowledge allowing them to adopt and more efficiently implement such innovations sooner.

Synopsis: This volume is an essential reference book wherein expert contributors set out the important principles which may assist in the practice of sustainable building. The trend towards environmental protection is gaining momentum. Social and political forces are increasing the pressure for more environmentally-sound technological decisions, but in Europe sustainable building has not become common practice despite numerous technical and technological initiatives. The conceptual frameworks, studies, and experiences collected in this interdisciplinary book will help clients, designers, and producers to overcome non-technological barriers and to advance knowledge in sustainable building, allowing them to speed up the adoption and the efficient implementation of such innovations.This volume includes chapters on sustainable building policies, tools, and challenges. This book will be of interest to academics, researchers, and practitioners amongst others, in civil engineering, architecture, geography, public sector management, and environmental services.
