Abstract

The study aims to access the implementation of sustainable housing indicators (SHI) in the building design and construction in Ondo State, Nigeria. Generally, the overall degree of incorporating SHI in the building construction showed that Ondo Central District (OCAEZ) has the highest design compliance, while the awareness is unpopular in Ondo North District (ONAEZ) and Ondo South District (OSAEZ). Conversely, the selection of sustainability key indicators is very important at the early design stage and this would be veritable to projecting the environmental impact, energy and air quality sustainability potency of building. This development will go a long way to integrate and improve the building design and construction and enabling sustainability in building development.
