dc.description.abstractThe emerging trend of climate change adaptation in the construction industry has raised the need to identify the sustainability requirements of the construction industry. Considering sustainability has the potential to enhance company profiles and improve relationships with stakeholders particularly clients. This paper presents a case study of a Local Authority and sheds light on some major issues, drivers, benefits, and organisational changes associated with sustainable construction. In addition, it identifies the critical factors for successful sustainable practices. The findings reveal that the implementation of sustainable practices often demands significant organisational and management capabilities such as closer collaboration and joint work between internal units, sustainability experts, sustainability targets as well as collaboration between demand and supply sides. It is found that clients awareness and education are vital for successful sustainable construction.en
