Two of SFI Lab’s  core members, Dr. Annie Pearce and Dr. Yong Han Ahn, have recently partnered with international firm HPGlobal and Earthscan Publications to produce a book that addresses sustainability in the built environment throughout its life cycle and across all construction activities. It is aimed at students taking courses in Construction Management and the Built Environment. Written in a lively and engaging style, the book sets out the practical requirements of making the transition to a sustainable construction industry by 2020. Case studies are included throughout, making the book both a core reference and a practical guide. To order the book or request a complimentary exam copy, visit Earthscan’s web site.
