Call for Papers

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

we are pleased to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue Quality
as Driver for Sustainable Construction of the journal Sustainability.
Using case studies, examples, models, and problem definitions, we want
to show how quality can be a driver for the evolution of the building
and construction sector toward a sustainable industry.

Today, construction accounts for 40% of global energy consumption and
50% of global waste. Hence, the building sector urgently requires
innovation to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Even
more, it is expected to cause a significantly growing environmental
impact due to a steep rise in the demand for housing and
infrastructure. Thus, the construction sector is faced with the
two-fold challenge of performing the transition toward a sustainable
building culture and delivering adequate and affordable housing for a
growing world population. To master these challenges, fundamental
innovations are required that significantly improve the technical,
environmental, and social quality of buildings and construction
processes over the full life cycle of the buildings.

For further information, please refer to the attached information and,
especially to:

We will be happy if you distribute this information among colleagues
and experts in this domain.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested and/or you
have further questions.

Sincerly Yours, Cordula Kropp, Philip Leistner, Werner Sobek, Volker Schwieger
