"It was only until recently that people began to realize that it is also one of the major contributors to pollution and environmental degradation. The government needs to emphasize the need to control pollution and to protect the environment by promoting the conservation of energy and resources throughout the building industry. Some of the environmental threats faced by the industry include proper treatment of waste materials used during construction, energy conservation during construction and noise pollution emitted during construction processes."
