Increasing technical and socio-cultural information accompanied by a fragmented specialization in knowledge and skills, rapidly changing technology, and liberal economic growth that negates rational use and distribution of world's resources challenge ecological sustainability. These challenges and concurrent trends for sustainable development, e.g., sustainable construction, motivate the IDS approach in the delivery of projects for the built environment.
