The construction sector has the capacity to make a significant contribution to a more sustainable future for our planet. Sustainable practices in the construction sector should be the result of the accomplishments of the concept of sustainable development in the context of planning, preparation, implementation, and effective use of construction investments. Contrary to popular tenets, sustainable construction should go beyond ecological construction, also meeting the social and economic goals of sustainable development. Sustainable construction is related to the creation of building structures through processes and using materials that are environmentally friendly in connection with the principles of economics and limiting the negative impact of construction investments on the natural environment and human life and health.
The editors invite the submission of papers for this Special Issues that concern:
- Innovative technologies used in the implementation of sustainable construction investments;
- Technical problem solution and conceptual implementation of construction projects in the context of sustainable development;
- Social benefits of residents’ health protection;
- Effective use of energy, water, and other natural resources;
- Limiting the amount of waste, pollution, and degradation of the natural environment during the implementation of construction projects;
- Regeneration of housing, particularly to revitalize town centers;
- Economic and organizational problems of construction investments management;
