What can structural engineers contribute to sustainable design?

There is so much more a structural engineer can do! The first step is to become educated on the issues and different roles within a project that structural engineers can play. The report “Sustainability Guidelines for Structural Engineers” is a good starting point. It covers topics from what can be done with each of the common Structural Materials, to Reuse, Design for Deconstruction and Adaptability, Integration with other building systems, Infrastructure, Life Cycle Assessment, and Green Codes. In the meantime, we will be populating the Resources page of this site with useful links. Please check back frequently.
