Abstract

Sustainable development concept has opened a broad range of understanding and interpretation among people. Researchers have been adopting the concept in various disciplines within their interests of studies. In line with this, the urge to adopt the concept of sustainable development has drawn interests among construction professionals. The construction industry is considered having a major role to play in implementing the principles of sustainable development, which leads to the development of the discipline of sustainable construction. A large number of research works have been conducted in investigating the methods for promoting sustainable construction. However there is no study done to look at the effectiveness of these methods developed previously. This paper therefore presents a comprehensive understanding on various methodologies proposed in the existing studies for promoting sustainable construction. An analysis is given on the effectiveness between several typical sustainable construction methods.
