This chapter aims to give a brief overview of some of the technologies that are available to undertake sustainable construction of dwellings. The explanation of some of these available techniques and technologies is not intended to be exhaustive. However, it is hoped that the reader will be able to develop an insight into the use and benefits of these alternative technologies, which are increasing in popularity. One of the main aims of this chapter is to raise your awareness of what green buildings actually are and to give you ideas that could be utilised in the future as alternative sustainable approaches to the construction of houses. Hopefully you will find this chapter interesting enough to make you want to investigate the topic of green buildings further.
