Nanomaterials has become one of the most powerful material in this century for its usage and benefits. However, there are low usage of nanomaterials in our country as the awareness of nanomaterials is more extensive than anticipated. It may because of the contractor’s inability to lay off their comfort zone and lack of knowledge on nanomaterials which prone to lack of design, technology and expertise. The aim of this study is to develop strategies in order to regulate the use of nanomaterials in the construction industry. The objectives of this study are to identify the level of awareness towards nanomaterials and to analyze the challenges to implement nanomaterials while recommend the benefits in the construction industry. The research method for this study will be fully based on literature review and questionnaire. The respondent of this study is the building contractors class G7 within Kuching, Sarawak specifically to the middle management of the organization. The findings are expected to give more exposure on the benefits of nanomaterials at once will increase the usage in the construction industry and can be use as advance study for students and academicians. Nanomaterial is considered as a modern material which need an acknowledgement by the people in construction industry.
