ABSTRACT

The article considers the theoretical aspects and practical methodology of cost-effective eco-directed structural design. Nowadays the problem of ecological safety of the construction process is significant all over the world. Most efficient ways to solve the problem are dealt with keeping the environmental requirements at all phases of construction and best possible conservation of the whole ecosystem. All kinds of environmental harm, caused by construction process, generally could be converted to certain amount of emitted green-gass gases and burnt fossil fuel. These figures could be preliminary estimated and valuated in eco-penalties, separately for materials and technologies used during construction process. Paper starts a discussion to basic principles of these eco-penalties assessment and methods for their implementation into current pricing practice and specialized software for construction cost valuation.

Keywords: sustainable design, eco-development, cost-effective structural design, estimated cost of construction
