Sustainability is an inevitable trend.  However, the number of green building developments is still limited.  Previous studies have attributed this to the perception of “Green costs more” as presented by quantity surveyors to construction clients.  It is also argued that the commonly adopted figure of 5-15% as the extra cost for green has ‘seriously’ overestimated capital cost. This seminar will cover the latest research findings on the cost and performance of green buildings worldwide.
