Abstract: In recent years, it is evident to see the growth and popularity of Green Building Construction Projects in Singapore, with more and more private sectors engaging in them. Similarly on a global level, growing concerns over climatic changes and environmental issues have seen tremendous growth in the construction industry specifically in the green area. However, different stakeholders have different views on the feasibility of Green Building Construction Projects as well as on the entire undertaking process. Therefore, this research paper aims to examine the different perspectives of the different stakeholders, considering their level of involvement in the Green Building Construction Projects as well as the obstacles they faced when dealing with them. Eventually, building on the research findings, solutions are proposed to overcome these barriers and the perspectives of the stakeholders are considered when it comes to selection of the most effective solution. This study was developed through extensive literature review and survey questionnaires with the different stakeholders. The findings revealed that cost was the main issue when it comes to Green Building Construction Projects where high premium costs and green building practices that are costly to implement. Hence, to deal with the cost-related problem, strong governmental support is crucial where incentives should be extended to research and development and training for Green Building practices. Subsidies should also be provided to assist the stakeholders who have intentions to adopt Green Building Construction Projects.
