A Holistic View for Integrating Sustainability...

picto-resource
Emerging economies in Asia and Latin America face rapid urbanization and city building in the next few decades. The existing work force and the next generation of built environment graduates play a significant role in lowering carbon emissions as a result of rapid building and infrastructure now and in the future. A range of disciplines comprises the built environment professions, and these disciplines need to work collaboratively to optimize design, construction and operational impacts.
