Sustainable construction management (SCM) is a platform for sustainable and green construction practices. Two key aspects of SCM are resource efficiency and ecological principles. Sustainable building practices have experienced significant growth, while the awareness of global warming and other environmental issues has gained momentum. Despite indications of significant growth, SCM has not been without challenges and barriers, the most common of which is the premium cost over conventional practices. However, the cost of SCM could be minimized or eliminated through improving the level of communication across the project team, inclusive design charrette processes for project stakeholders, and effective front end planning.
This Special Issue will provide an opportunity for researchers to exchange new ideas across the emerging field. The goal of this Special Issue is to collect high-quality contributions to address the sustainable construction management advancements and best practices. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the ones listed below.
- Potential motivators to achieve sustainable construction safety and health;
- Adversarial modeling for sustainable construction management;
- Sustainable construction safety and health rating system;
- Integrating environmental, quality, and safety management systems;
- Effective front end planning for sustainable construction;
- Sustainable construction practices through safety culture;
- Modeling risk management in sustainable construction;
- Sustainable construction waste management.
