Abstract

Water is pivotal for human life. The sustainable development of goods and facilities should account for its preservation in terms of both quantity and quality. In this paper, a brief case study on the water consumption and management of construction sites was presented. By means of a methodology developed by the authors, the process, product, and service water exploited in building processes have been analyzed. The results show that the water-loss is spread in the different phases of the processes involving machinery, materials, work organization, and environment. The tool, coupled with a check-list approach, is available for designers and managers in order to lead a new awareness on the issue and improve the sustainability of construction sites.
