Most of the construction stakeholders around the world especially in developing countries are not really aware of the
Resource Recovery approaches in contemporary construction projects. Previous studies reported that Resource
Recovery issues received less attention from the construction industry stakeholders compared to construction costs
and time related issues. However, this trend has changed due to the depletion of non-renewable resources,
greenhouse gas emissions and global warming with much effort now being directed to ‘build greener’ construction
projects through proper application of the Resource Recovery approach. This study examined current application of
Resource Recovery approach among Malaysia’s construction stakeholders. Primary data were gathered from 122
questionnaires returned by Malaysian construction stakeholders that included consultants, contractors and clients .
The analysis revealed that the adoption of Resource Recovery was only mildly practiced by the Malaysian
construction stakeholders.
