This chapter focuses on the sustainability from the construction management perspective. Existing internationally known sustainability rating systems (e.g., LEED) are reviewed and compared in details. Indicators in construction sustainability are provided for both the building and infrastructure sectors. Innovative approach in sustainable construction management includes prefabricated construction, digital technology in terms of Building Information Modeling, and the integrated project delivery (IPD) method. Life cycle assessment is introduced with its key stages explained. The key features and challenges within the life cycle of sustainable construction projects are discussed. The importance of multiparty collaboration within the early project life cycle stages is analyzed. Finally, multiple case studies corresponding to construction site sustainability management, prefabricated construction, IPD method, and life cycle assessment are provided.
