Building for a Sustainable Future: Construction without Depletion
Institution of Structural Engineers
96 pages

This is a concise listing of all the quantifiable design and analysis tools the engineering profession must start using to minimise their collective environmental impact. The book is worth buying just for the embodied energy tables in the appendix. It would be essential reading for all building trades if the tired building examples could be replaced by more inspiring case studies, with worked examples of each issue accessible to the reader.
