Engineers and architects have choices of the material and products they use to design projects – Material choice depends on several factors including first cost, life cycle cost and performance for a specific application. Due to growing interest in sustainable development engineers and architects are motivated more than ever before to choose materials that are more sustainable. However, on what ―measurement‖ basis can engineers and architects compare materials and choose one that is more sustainable or specify a material in such a way as to minimize environmental impact? A green building needs special materials and systems to adapt sustainability compared with a conventional building. This paper is an effort towards comparing two main construction materials and providing comprehensive analysis which will help Engineers and Architects determining their material choices.
