Abstract

There has been growing interest in minimizing the environmental impact associated with development and construction work. Designers, researchers, and builders have adapted to new regulations by developing ingenious, low-impact construction techniques, including shredding on-site construction waste for use as non-structural fills or landscaping materials; using constructed wetlands to contain hazardous wastes; and recycling demolished concrete in highway construction projects.
