Sustainable metal Buildings reviews metal and its strength as a sustainable development fabric and indicates how metal can be utilized to bring constructions and buildings with a excessive point of sustainability. The book's major concentration is at the benefits and drawbacks of metal and the way these features can be utilized below more than a few foreign certification platforms (DGNB, LEED, BREEAM, openhouse etc).

However, it will become ever more important as the energy efficiency of buildings increases, whereas the operation of a building currently accounts for some 80% of a building’s energy requirement today. The ­relative amount will decrease in future as a result of more thermal insulation measures and increased efficiency of household equipment, lighting, and so forth. 1). Data on assessing the energy required to produce building materials is published, for example, in EPDs. 5 EU industrial emissions directive The new European Industrial Emissions Directive (IED) came into force on 6 January 2011; it brings together seven directives including the previous directive on integrated pollution prevention and control from 1996.

Even though this process does not directly form part of the building life cycle, it is nevertheless important, because it determines the basic aspects that will influence the sustainability performance of the building. The building owner should take advantage of this potential and take account of all the building’s relevant requirements during the planning stage. 3). 2 Product stage Resource extraction, transport of the resources, the manufacturing process and completion of the finished products at the factory ‘gate’ all form part of the production stage of the construction materials.

The model is enhanced through additional information on time, resources and costs. 5). 3 Interoperability and open bim The description of the integrated planning process shows that, contrary to widespread beliefs, BIM is not characterized by the creation of a single, huge building information model that all project parties share and simultaneously alter. Rather, the different disciplines work on their specific models, such as architectural model, structural steel model or MEP model. BIM forms a bridge between all parties involved, enabling them to continuously coordinate their designs.
