Sustainable Construction: Building Performance Simulation
The Construction industry is responsible for creating, modifying and improving the living environment of humanity. On the other hand, construction and buildings have considerable environmental impacts, consuming over 40 % of total primary energy, the built environment is in the centre of worldwide strategies and measures towards a more Sustainable future. To provide resilient solutions, a simple optimisation of individual technologies will not be sufficient
ndustry. The main purpose of this book, Sustainable Construction: Building Performance Simulation and Asset and Maintenance Management, is to provide a collection of recent research works to provide the best practice solutions, case studies and practical advice on implementation of Sustainable Construction techniques prepared by industry. It includes a set of new developments in the field of building performance simulation, building sustainability assessment, sustainable management, asset and maintenance management and service-life prediction.
