Abstract

Sustainable green housing delivery has been advocated as the pathway to a balanced built environment. However, stakeholders have not fully embraced its adoption, particularly in developing nations. To encourage the widespread adoption of sustainable housing, a better understanding into sustainable green development's potentials are imperative. This research unveils sustainable green housing delivery benefits. The common beneficial themes from the literature were extracted for investigation using a structured questionnaire. The survey participants were private investors (housing developers) and academia. Data for the study were analysed using mean item score, factor analysis, and ranking agreement analysis. Findings indicated that all the identified 22 investigated benefits are essential. The factor analytical result grouped these variables into satisfaction, housing promotion, cost minimization, economic promotion, and environmental development-related benefits. The agreement analysis revealed a high level of consensus between housing developers and academia on housing promotion (73%), economic promotion (100%), and environmental development (100%) related benefits. This study's findings are a credible road map and prudent recommendation for housing providers to implement sustainable housing delivery to promote a balanced and sustainable environment. It will also assist the government, clients, policymakers, and practitioners in increasing the delivery and investment in sustainable housing.
