Sustainable built environment has been the major focus in academic and industrial fields. The rise in climate-related-disasters, constant challenges in energy sector and substantial shift in consumer’s conscious toward conservation of natural resources are the major forces behind sustainable engineering. Further, many professional bodies have developed guidelines and specifications to implement sustainable practices and rate their impacts.
