Abstract

The action of construction it is perceived to have a significant influence on the environmental assessment. In spite of the confession that environmental issues are significant in the construction field, and is slow to alteration the conventional way to combine environmental issue as part of the decision process. With increased information and awareness about these influence, among these sustainable building construction and material issues. In this article was began with investigate these issues in the North Cyprus, a questionnaire survey was conducted to investigate the scale of awareness, learning and implementation of sustainability in practices between architect’s perception and how this effect on their design decisions. The methodology adopted in this research was the quantitative method approach survey research type dependent by an extensive questionnaires survey of North Cyprus architects. Collected data are analyzed, with the Excel and SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences). The critical finding showed the gap exists among awareness and inapplicable of sustainability in construction practices, which began with the failure of realizing the advantage of a sustainable process to the construction practice in North Cyprus. The study displayed a contradiction between what architect’s demand to be satisfied with, and their obligation and practices; they appear to be incapable of translating their information and awareness into the suitable design and system support that can assist the integration of sustainability into the design.
