The implementation of sustainable construction has been one of the main challenges in Malaysian construction industry. The implementation of sustainable construction have been unsuccessful due to various barriers such like lack of awareness among developers, lack of understanding of the sustainability concept and limited knowledge. This study identifies the main barriers to successful implementation of sustainable construction in the Malaysia residential area. A semi structured interviews was carried out among selected developers in Selangor state to identify the barriers for developers to successful implementation of sustainable construction and measures the strategies to overcome the barriers to sustainable construction. The survey has revealed the barriers to successful implementation of sustainable construction are higher cost of sustainable construction application, lack of awareness, material shortage, lack of technology, lack of knowledge and education and lack of client’s interest and requirements. Majority urged that the barriers to implement a sustainable construction is due to the low level of public awareness and mainly cause by financial constraints. This has greatly impact to successful implementation of sustainable construction. By adopting sustainable construction, it can minimize the overall energy used, minimize waste, decrease the rate of pollutions, conserve the natural resources, enhance water quality and maximize potential for renewable energy supply.
