Abstract

Argues that the traditional construction procurement and management dimensions of time, quality and cost should be augmented by a fourth dimension – the environment. Discusses the considerable pollution problems of Hong Kong and the impact that construction has on the environment of the island. A well planned, managed and audited environmental assurance approach is advocated.
