Abstract

Sustainable development as a desired goal in construction is a result of recent legislation in Greece and its harmonisation with European Directives. In this study, in order to assess the implementation to the existing legislation of the sustainability issues in construction activities the related objectives examined were Energy Efficiency and Pollution Prevention (including Greenhouse Gas Emissions Reduction). The data used were collected from pioneer projects such as the Solar Village III in Lykovrisi Athens and the innovative heating system in Kozani West Macedonia Greece using real time control monitoring systems. The project data concerned with fuel consumption and basic pollutants (SO2, NOx, PM10). The comparison before and after the establishment of the pioneer project indicated that there is 45-70% reduction of fuel consumption, up to 25% reduction of dust and 35% of NOx, while SO2 was reduced up to 24%. Therefore, the corresponding sustainability indicators express a significant change and challenge for further implementation of such projects.
