Abstract:
The design and construction of sustainable buildings involve striking a sensible balance of social, environmental and economic considerations. Concrete, in its many forms, is a versatile building material that can provide many sustainable benefits by virtue of its economic value, thermal mass, durability, fire resistance, acoustic performance, adaptability and recyclability. Choosing the appropriate method of concrete construction for the particular type of building will ensure these benefits are utilised to deliver the most sustainable outcome.
