"This book is brilliantly conceived and well needed internationally. Up to now the focus has been on individual sustainable building – a book of this scope dealing with the infrastructure on which most of them will depend for the foreseeable future is long overdue." – George Baird, Professor, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
"This book is a comprehensive guide to the unique challenges associated with planning, design, construction, operation, and eventual decommissioning of the complex infrastructure systems that are essential to sustaining civilization. It is a useful reference for industry professionals and government officials, as well as a valuable framework for continued academic research." – Thomas Vautin, Associate Vice President for Facilities and Environmental Services, Harvard University, USA
