Abstract: The current demand for economically viable buildings in the Saudi Public Sector is coupled with the need to maximise the efficient use of Saudi Arabian natural resources. The lack of consideration paid to sustainability issues during the conceptual phase has resulted in higher consumption of materials and energy during both the construction and operational phases of many building projects. This paper proposes a theoretical framework to implement sustainable construction principles in briefing process. It integrates Soft Value Management (SVM) to sustainable construction to enable the client and project team to put into action sustainability principles in the briefing process. The proposed framework was synthesised from a review of literature and current best practice. This paper is part of an ongoing research which aims to exploit the VM experiences and skills of those in the Saudi Public Sector in order to accelerate the understanding and implementation of sustainable construction in the country.
