L. Lung, M. Shaurette

Abstract


Green building construction has experienced significant growth in the recent decades and Peru is not the exception because actually several of the prime office buildings have or are pursuing any green building certification. However, the higher initial costs affect its continuity and growth speed. Researchers have studied the tools and techniques for cost containment and their application had effective use in the construction process. The aim of this study was to suggest a specific tool or technique for traditional constructions that can benefit and enhance the cost containment of green buildings. The findings from this study show the impact and applicability of collaborative working in design and construction as a management tool, through a survey among construction professionals in regards cost containment for green buildings. These results could encourage the green buildings construction growth in this country, through the appliance of this tool.
