Increasing demand of human beings has a greater effect on the self-sustaining nature of Earth. New technologies facilitated the new generations but created a question mark on the existence of the next generation. The only way to remove this possibility is sustainable development. Through this paper review of evolution of various construction materials is drawn from sustainability aspects and various alternative solutions are highlighted. From the evolutionary history of construction materials, it is found that all other materials have some sustainability issue or construction issue and hence with the development of advanced material their use in construction is reduced. With this study it has been concluded that concrete has been a widely used construction material since the 19th century. With the advancement in concrete technology this will remain popular for a longer time and hence those aspects of concrete which create sustainability issues are to be resolved.

Globally, Fayol’s principles generate researchers’ interest in exploring its potentiality usage in various sectors. However, within construction sector, there’s minimal study and its potentiality is not well explored in terms of effectiveness and hierarchical-relationship. Paper aimed to explore potentiality of Fayol’s principles in Nigerian construction projects. Mixed data collected from professionals using structured questionnaires and interview. Study recorded response rate of 57.5%. The collected data analyses using descriptive/inferential statistic and ISM-based model. Finding show that professionals admitted Fayol’s principles as an effective in managing building projects. Also, from ISM-based model, top level1 (Remuneration, Scalar chain, Esprit-de-corps) remain highly dependent principles while bottom level5 (Division of work and Authority) identified as significant principles that may lead to others from bottom to upward direction. Additionally, MICMAC-Analysis grouped 99% of Fayol’s principles as linkage group. Study concludes Fayol’s principles have potential to promote efficiency, effectiveness, performance and the model will provide better perceptive understanding of hierarchical-relationship among principles of management.

Emphasizing on the pothole maintenance technique the existing traditional way of filling the pothole is inadequate and non-lasting. Pothole is a depression on the road surface where traffic has removed broken pieces of pavement, usually asphalt pavement. Potholes can widen from just a few inches to several feet in width and depth. If they occur and are large enough then there is a chance of damage to tires, wheels and vehicle suspensions. The direct result can lead to serious road accidents. This study concept of repairing the pothole is more sustainable and innovative. Pothole repair technique is done with the help of recycled filler material, and a waterproof membrane is laid over it to prevent the water infiltration. This technique can be applied to both rigid and flexible pavements. Waterproofing membranes are bituminous membranes made with Atactic Polypropylene Membrane (APP) and Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) polymers that have improved thermal properties, longer lifespans, plasticity, low temperature resilience, high temperature and ageing. It has a high resistance to flow at high temperatures and excellent efficiency at optimum price. The membrane itself is puncture resistant and shows high elastic characteristics. Recycled stuff, such as concrete debris, plastic waste, is to be used to minimize the cost of fixing the pothole. This paper presents individual work on Bituminous Concrete with LDPE and crumb rubber. Use of Membrane for pothole filling and Epoxy mix bitumen has not been used so far thus creating a scope for trying new things.

An attempt is being made in this research study to envisage the feasibility of using waste glass as a partial replacement to fine aggregate. Mortar cubes using waste glass in varied proportions were subjected to compression test at the age of 3, 7 and 28days curing. The replacement of fine aggregates with 20% glass yield was 23.09 N/mm2, 26.89 N/mm2 and 42.50 N/mm2 which was 16%,19% and 14% higher than control at the end of 3, 7 and 28 days curing respectively. The structural and morphological characteristics of the glass granules and crushed mortar were analysed by EDX, SEM and XRD. XRD results clearly suggested that the mortar cube was crystalline and glass powder was amorphous in nature.

In India road construction is emerging fast which resulted in the increased usage of natural aggregate. Natural aggregates are depleting due to large quantity use in the road network development. The depletion of natural aggregate requires seeking out for an alternative for aggregate in the upcoming years. Slag is an industrial waste of iron and steel industry. The dump of Slag is an environmental problem. In this study, natural aggregate is replaced with EAF and ACBF Slag in the Dense Bituminous Macadam of flexible pavement at various proportions of 15%, 25% and 35% and 15%, 25% respectively. The objective of this study is to evaluate the properties of slag, aggregate and bitumen for the preparation of several Marshall Mixes samples using various percentage of slag instead of natural aggregate to achieve optimum binder content by using Marshall Method for Dense Bituminous Macadam.
