To ensure comprehensiveness, the book will cover the following: ? The background of sustainable building ? Basic concepts of sustainable construction ? Methods and design tools for the delivery of sustainable buildings ? Steel and its performance in certification systems, both criteria and material-specific answers ? Information and data on relevant steel construction products ? Examples of sustainable steel buildings
