Paper Title:
Framework for Construction Industry Sustainable Development Measurement
  Abstract

As a resource-intensive industry, the policy, processes and practices in relation to sustainable development of the construction industry is critical. An important theoretical and practical concern is the creation of indicator systems that assist with the measurement of sustainable urban development. Past research and practice has tended to focus on the measurement of sustainability of the construction projects in relation to the individual projects or at the organizational level. This paper introduces a new measurement of sustainable development for construction industry as a whole so that countries can make comparisons. The model is based on the previous research, the fundamental meaning of sustainable development and the characteristics of the construction industry.
