Latif, Muhd Afiq Qayyum (2021) Perception of sustainable refurbishment in Sarawak construction industry / Muhd Afiq Qayyum Latif. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


Malaysia is a developing country in which a significant flood of construction demand should focus not only on establishing new areas but also on the sustainable refurbishment of existing buildings. However, there is a problem in establishing a sustainable concept especially amongst professionals in private developers as their goal is to obtain more profit and benefit instead of focusing on developing processes. As a result, this problem has negatively impacted most of the development nowadays because it lacks the option for sustainable refurbishment of existing buildings rather than developing new green buildings, which contributes most of the carbon output. For this reason, this research aims to ascertain the implementation and perception of sustainable refurbishment among developer companies in the Sarawak Construction Industry. The method of distributing 100 questionnaires was used to conduct a survey of Kuching development professionals. The study's findings point to an impediment to the establishment of long-term refurbishment among private developer professionals. The outcomes of this research represent the level of knowledge consider low among the professional and barrier that hinder the sustainable refurbishment application is lack form top level and expert to lead on refurbishment operation.
