MetadataShow full item record
Green building practices (GBP) constitute the foundation of sustainable construction development. In order to fulfill the green building development in Qatar, this study will shed some light on the current status of GBP in Qatar's construction projects and assess the level of intention of engineers to adopt GBP. A total of 378 valid questionnaires were gathered and analyzed using SPSS v23. The researchers found that the lack of knowledge of GBP and high costs of materials required for GBP use were among the factors that could keep engineers from adopting GBP. Importantly, the study found that engineers, regardless of their age group, roles, occupation, educational level, experience, and income, had the same level of intention to adopt GBP. This study could significantly help the government and decision makers improve and accelerate the implementation of GBP in Qatar's construction projects.
