Abstract: Malaysia started to implement several national policies related to sustainable development since 1980’s such as National Energy Policy (1980), National Depletion Policy (1980), Four Fuel Diversification Policy (1981) and Fifth Fuel Policy (2000). Subsequently, sustainable construction already started to evolve since the beginning of Eight Malaysia Plan by integration of social, economic and environment. But sustainable development in Malaysia is still in initial stage as more research and development in terms of facilities and renewable energy resources are needed. Based on the previous researchers, there are six factors which influenced the development of sustainable construction. The six factors are factor related to project, factor related to project manager, factors related to project team, factor related to material and equipment, factors related to client and factors related external. Furthermore, identification of success factors will eventually leads to development of theoretical framework of success factors of sustainable construction. The findings from this study through the identification and comparison of success factors will reveal the weakness and advantages of existing factors and help to improve the success factors of theoretical framework. This research study uses survey method or questionnaire for data collection process. There are total of 120 questionnaires distributed to respondents which consists of contractors in location around Peninsular Malaysia. The research data have been analysed with factor analysis method using Smart PLS.
