The Research Unit TISCo (Innovative Technology for Construction Sustainability) of B.E.S.T. (Building Environment Science & Technology) Department of Milan Polytechnic carried out a study concerning the realization of guidelines for sustainable public construction. Moreover Lombardy region has joined the Sustainable Building Council association in order to promote more sustainable building processes. As references to formulate the evaluation models we have used both Leed Reference Guide for Green Building Design Construction and ITACA Guidelines. In particular, every design discipline involved in the research have to develop models to evaluate the design sustainability. This paper first proposes an analysis of the ‘not wasteable’ resources and the exigencies, then an evaluation breakdown structure in order to evaluate sustainability of construction site design.

Keywords: Sustainability, Safety, Management, Contractor selection.
