awareness among developers in Malaysia is still at low-moderate level. The study indicates the greatest barrier of implementing the green development is a higher of capital upfront i.e. professional fees, green assessment fees, design and material cost. The unavailability of financial incentives from the Government also added to the obstacle. Then, amongst the biggest challenge of the developers is to produce right yet affordable price of green home to attract low-medium income people. Other than that the obstacles pointed to improbable experiences and in-depth knowledge among the team members and low mentality of Malaysian towards sustainability concept. However, the study revealed there is some improvement in green materials availability in the market. Where it shows that the green building materials are easily procured locally unlike in previous studies.
