Abstract

Purpose–The vast amount of Construction and Demolition (C&D) waste generation reported implicates that construction industry didn’t perform well in handling resource management.Research gap which shows that effectiveness in waste management has highly correlation with knowledge acquaintance level of the practitioners. This study has investigated the acquaintance level of project upstream stakeholders to standards of C&D waste innovations. Design/methodology/approach–Aqualitative methodhas been deployed to assess and review insights and opinions from respondents through their experiences and exposure on C&Dwaste innovations. Semi-structured interview with 10 respondents in order to probe with more findings from respondents.Findings–Highest acquaintance level on C&D waste innovation standard in using Building Information Modelling (BIM)following by using RFID, barcode, GIS, and mechanical sorting innovations and lastly none from SMART Waste innovation.Research limitations/implications–This paper is limited on the responses coverage on Penang area which doesn’t represented findings to the whole construction industry in Malaysia. Originality/value–The paper findings depicted the current status of the industry towards waste management efforts with innovation.This also help to foster initiative plans in deciding which lifecycle of project should be given emphasizing by the regulators as all waste innovations have its own respective functions,timeline and varied effectiveness
