Task 3(b) Literature Review
Green building is a construction were as the structure ,application and functionality are environmentally ,economically and socially responsible in term of the life cycle from the start of the designing, construction, operation, maintenance renovation and demolition. The green building are used to improve the classical building design in the economy, utility, durability and conform. It also better in the term of efficient of energy, water, material and others compare to the conventional building that are mostly used in the construction industries. Meanwhile, the conventional building are mostly being adapt to every construction in the world because of the method and more cheaper than the green building. But in the scope of the sustainability, the conventional building are less in the economical , environmental and social efficiency. In term of cost the conventional building are more cheaper because of cheaper price material. In Malaysia, the construction or green building are still in small popularity among malaysia developer and contractor.

There are wide scope that green building construction can improve and enchange the concern of environment as stated in the article ” Green building technology initiatives to achieve construction quality and environmental sustainability in the construction industry in Malaysia ” (Yeong Liang Sim, Frederik Josep Putuhena, 2015) where as the local construction industry must enchange the environmental concern and adopt the capacity of the development model to ensure the environment can keeping up the quality of the construction industry in malaysia.

The usage of green building still minimum being used in modern construction in malaysia.. The construction environmental always be dissatisfication issue. In the article ” Investigating the awareness and application of sustainable construction concept by Malaysian developers” (Abidin, N.Z., 2010) mention that only large scale developers in malaysia try to take heed towards sustainable implementation in their projects and in the research that has being conduct mention that due to limited understanding and the concern about cost, many developers are still reluctant and uncertain concerning pursuit of sustainability in their projects.

Other than that, in modern construction industry the green construction should be practice to ensure the sustainability of develop country. Base on article ” Developing a green building assessment tool for developing countries–Case of Jordan” told that green technology should be consider in develop country to overcome the environmental , economics and social problems.

In addition,green building contributes a good impact to out economics ,social and environment. According to article ” Green building research–current status and future agenda: A review. Renewable and sustainable energy reviews” (Zuo, J. and Zhao, Z.Y., 2014) told that the green building brings more benefits than the conventional building such as the social sustainability.

Next, this new construction method are very economical to in cost because it use natural source or renewable energy in the same time it less use electricity to power up the building because of the design and material. Based on the article ” Canadian practitioners’ perception of research work investigating the cost premiums, long-term costs and health and productivity benefits of green buildings” (Issa, M. H., Rankin, J. H., & Christian, A. J. ,2010) mention that sustainability of green building bring more long-term health, environment, social , economics and financial benefit . It is because the green build are mostly low energy efficient design (LEED) that require low energy, environmental friendly and low maintenance cost to operate
As conclusion, the green building bring more sustainability than the conventional building because of the improvement of the design, low energy and low maintenance cost. The efficiency are more better and provide more healthy environment for user and produce good output rather than the conventional building.

show arguments relation to the current study and able to identify loopholes in prior studies.

Claim :

The construction sector will benefit from learning advances in capacity development which are designed to improve and enhance construction and environmental quality governance Gap:
The changes of the construction if the green building technology are use to improve the sustainability. Abidin, N.Z., 2010. Investigating the awareness and application of sustainable construction concept by Malaysian developers. Habitat International, 34(4), pp.421-426. To improve the momentum of sustainable practice in the industry, actions should be directed towards improving this knowledge at all levels of developers. Arguments :
rising concerns over the deterioration in the environment

Gap:
The pace of actions towards sustainable application depends on the awareness, knowledge as well as an understanding of the consequences of individual actions
Ali, H.H. and Al Nsairat, S.F., 2009. Developing a green building assessment tool for developing countries–Case of Jordan. Building and environment, 44(5), pp.1053-1064. The assessment of the green building tool and the role to achieving sustainable development through developing an effective green building Claim :The development in green building must have necessary for developing country because of the considerable environmental, social and economical problems
Gap:
The other country need to
use the system to ensure the development are in the right path. Zuo, J. and Zhao, Z.Y., 2014. Green building research–current status and future agenda: A review. Renewable and sustainable energy reviews, 30, pp.271-281. Using LEGO as the model to study the effective of the green building toward the building to enchange the building and the environmental quality. Arguments:
The sustainable construction need a realistic thinking and decision to enhance the solution to the better result and creadibility.

Loopholes:
The capacity in the model will contribute to the understanding of environmental sustainability by identifying the gaps in the understanding and pursuit of construction between environmental quality in the Malaysian construction industry

Canadian practitioners’ perception of research work investigating the cost premiums, long-term costs and health and productivity benefits of green buildings. Building and environment, 45(7), pp.1698-1711. By using the green building method, the cost of the building maintenance can be reduce and the and it show more on financial benefits. Arguments:
Reduction in cost of maintenance will drive the good financial state for the building. Besides that, many believe that the green building consume more cost during construction. Loopholes:
The needs of future research work based on improving knowledge transfer between practitioners and researchers and on improving the rigour and accuracy of the literature by using more empirical data, and getting practitioners to endorse research work in the field. Refenrence Based on Harvard
