Most recent research
Sustainability and its related issues are some of the core research areas I have been researching into as they are seen as one of the key current thinking within academia and industry.
The most recent research published in Journal of Construction, Economics and Building: Akotia, J., Manu, E., Opoku, A., and Sackey, E. (2020) The role of built environment practitioners in driving the socio-economic sustainability aspects of sustainable regeneration, Construction, Economics and Building, 20:2, 89-108, explored the sustainability drivers of construction practitioners towards the promotion of sustainability of regeneration projects in the UK.
The study adopted qualitative research method using semi-structured interviews techniques to explore the sustainability drivers with the construction industry experts. The key finding from the study revealed that, while practitioners were sceptical about the cost implications of sustainability, majority of them were seen to be promoting sustainability drivers as a way of enhancing their reputation or image to enable them continue to draw attention from their potential future clients.
