With the continuous advancement of science and technology, the rapid development of the global economy, and the rapid increase in population, the land is seriously desertified, the cultivated land is gradually decreasing, natural disasters are frequent, and the greenhouse effect is expanding. It can be seen that the ecological environment has been seriously damaged. The problem of human survival is increasingly threatened. More and more people are paying attention to the protection of the ecological environment. The concept of harmonious development between human and nature has gradually penetrated into people’s hearts. How to balance economic development, resource development and environmental protection is an important issue that needs to be solved in this era.
The traditional construction industry is not only the pillar industry of the national economy, but also one of the three major energy-consuming industries. Its problems of high emission, high investment and high pollution have been very serious. According to relevant data, the construction industry accounts for 30% of the world's total energy consumption. In China’s new buildings, high loss types account for up to 80%. The coverage area of green buildings in existing buildings is only 760 million square meters, and the effective utilization rate of building energy is less than 30%. At the same time, according to the latest statistical yearbook, the total consumption of building energy in China increased from 53.09 million tons to 70.17 million tons of standard coal in 2010-2013, and the proportion of the total energy consumption of China is also increasing. The development of the construction industry should contribute to the national economy and promote low-carbonization of the industry from various angles, such as deepening reform and innovation, improving energy efficiency, and reducing environmental pollution, etc.
China’s economy has long been a short-sighted and rough economic development model at the expense of environmental pollution. It is characterized by high energy consumption, high loss, low life and land use. With the continuous progress of the society, it is obvious that this method is no longer suitable for the development trend of the current world, so it is necessary to realize the ecological and green construction industry as soon as possible. On the other hand, with the continuous development of environmental protection concepts, the ecological and green construction industry has also received extensive attention from experts and the general public. China’s economy is in rapid development, and China’s urbanization development is accelerating. In the future, China’s large housing demand will be still very strong. In the past, housing was only a place to provide shelter for the people. Today, people have more environmental health and quality assurance requirements for housing. At the same time, they are more eager for harmony between human settlements and nature. The development and construction management of green buildings is gradually received wide attention from all over the world.
Therefore, this book provides a detailed overview and analysis of green building construction and project management from eight chapters, hoping to promote the development of China’s green building industry.
