Construction sustainability aims to meet present day needs for housing, infrastructure and environments without compromising on the ability of future generations to meet their own requirement in time to come. It includes various elements of economic efficiency, social responsibility and environmental performance and it contributes to greatest extent when architectural quality, transferability and technical innovation are included.
