These hindrances can be reduced by learning what kind of decision-making stages, new tasks, actors, functions and communication. The research adopted mixed method (qualitative and quantitative). The finding shows the existing gap between awareness and implementation of sustainable local building materials selection in decision making process, suggest the barriers that are valuable and sustainable for use in practice.
