Book: Sustainability Guidelines for the Structural Engineer

The SEI Sustainability Committee has published guidelines to educate and advise structural engineers as they meet the challenge to design and construct a more sustainable built environment. The guidelines, a 300-page book, have been released through the ASCE press. The guidelines provide valuable information on a variety of topics of interest to the structural engineering community. While the intended audience is structural engineers, all design professionals will benefit from the content.

The guidelines are organized into five sections: Sustainable Design and Construction, Sustainable Strategies, Building Materials, Infrastructure, and Case Studies. Although many of the subjects presented are related, each section — and the related subsections — have been written to stand alone.

The committee is pleased to announce that the guidelines are now available for purchase through ASCE press.  Find out how your firm can improve upon sustainability through its designs!
