With superior fire resistance, strength, and a long service life, concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world. A sustainable material, concrete is also easily and affordably reused and rehabilitated. The first book to provide an overview of sustainability and concrete, Green Building with Concrete: Sustainable Design and Construction surveys the material’s history in the green building movement and presents state-of-the-art methodologies and best practices. From the manufacturing of cement to the rehabilitation of concrete, this comprehensive book explains how concrete can be used for sustainable design and construction. It offers insight into new technological and social developments guiding the introduction of green buildings and examines the attributes that concrete has to offer the green building movement. The text also highlights research on economic analysis—particularly life cycle costing—to provide a full picture of the economic benefits of concrete. Expert contributors from around the world offer diverse viewpoints on global sustainability. Topics covered include: Principles of sustainable design Benefits of concrete’s thermal mass Mitigation of urban heat island effects Surface runoff and the application of pervious concrete for sidewalks and parking areas Reduction of construction waste Leadership in energy and environmental design (LEED) standards Emphasizing environmental impact and occupational and consumer health and safety, this book explains how to make the most of concrete in sustainable design. Written for university and concrete industry continuing education courses, it also serves as a reference for building owners and industry professionals who recognize the value of green building.

Concrete Floors still form one of the most common structural elements in construction today. However, floors are responsible for more user complaints than any other building element. A floor must be designed around a user's needs, whether industrial or domestic but it also must comply with the correct standards such as floor flatness and structural strength. This book points the way to good practice by providing an introductory guide to the design and construction of concrete floors. Aimed at designers, civil and structural engineers, contractors and engineering and architectural consultants, this new edition brings the reader up to date with the latest developments and principles of floor design. * Demonstrates how to successfully design and build concrete floors by drawing from a wide range of global experience *Based on US, British and European construction standards *Updated to include the latest developments in floor design and construction

Based on fresh thinking and real world evidence, this book offers a rational method for accounting for the carbon impact of concrete in contemporary architecture. It sets out a series of case studies of different building types constructed in concrete. Based on new thinking and real world evidence, "Sustainable Concrete Architecture" offers a rational method for accounting for the carbon impact of concrete in contemporary architecture. Highly illustrated and detailed in scope, the book marries technical know-how with inspirational case studies. A technical front section looks at recent innovations in concrete technology with a comprehensive, balanced account of the material's embodied energy and impact-in-use. Often maligned as environmentally unfriendly, the technical evidence about concrete reveals its legitimate place in the current lexicon of low carbon building design. The second half of the book sets out a series of cutting-edge case studies of different building types constructed in concrete. The inspirational images and focused commentary conclude this refreshingly challenging reappraisal of concrete in the debate about sustainability.
