Examining the Effects of Challenges Faced in Green Construction on Project Outcomes: A Chinese Perspective

Mohammed Shareef M. S. Hasan
Abstract—This study aims to investigate the common challenges that project managers encounter while managing green building construction projects and their impact on project success. Furthermore, the study aims to examine the mediating effect of project performance in the relationship between project management challenges related to green construction and their success. This paper seeks to contribute to the green construction in China. In total 500 questionnaires were distributed, and 376 completed survey questionnaires were received. Structural equation modelling (SEM) using AMOS was conducted to check various proposed relationships. The results reveal that Challenge 2 and Challenge 5 are insignificant and have no impact on project success, whereas Challenges 1, 3 and 4 are found to be the predictors of project success. No mediation effect of project performance is found between Challenges 1 and 5 and project success. However, a partial mediation effect is found between Challenge 1 and project success.

Index Terms—Green buildings, project success, project performance, challenges, SEM.
