Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The construction and building sector is a great consumer of natural resources such as wood, minerals, water and energy. The goals of sustainability in construction and buildings require that practitioners utilize available natural resources in smart and efficient ways. A recent innovation in construction and building materials has enabled the design and fabrication of more sustainable and resilient civil infrastructure. The main purpose of this Special Issue is to introduce the latest developments and advances in materials that address the global sustainability challenges in construction and buildings. Original research papers, case studies, and review papers are all welcome.
