Sustainability is an inevitable trend. However, the number of green building
developments is still limited. Previous
studies have attributed this to the perception of “Green costs more” as
presented by quantity surveyors to construction clients. It is argued that the commonly adopted figure
of 5-15% as the extra cost for green has ‘seriously’ overestimated capital
cost. In this seminar, we shall discuss
the paradox of green building cost, covering the costing of building services
in green buildings in particular.
