This study investigated the environmental impacts of building constructions as expressed by the stakeholders in building and construction industry. The instrument used was structured questionnaire which were distributed randomly to 200 respondents for data collection and analysis. The research revealed that the major environmental impacts are: Habitat destruction which is caused by destruction of vegetation, pollution, waste accumulation, soil erosion, flood, global warming etc. All the impacts listed are above the mid (RII) index 1.0 suggesting that they are all significant environmental impacts and causes environmental degradation. Ecology conservation, pollution control, waste management was ranked as the most important environmental protection measures used to control building construction environmental impacts. The study therefore subjects the use of ministry of environment, Nigeria Environmental Protection Board, Nigeria Conservation Foundation and Environmental impact Assessment document to reduce environmental degradation and enhance sustainable environment and development. These findings should serve as a guide in developing a frame work for mitigating measures associated with construction projects in Nigeria. The outcome of this study can also help organizations and managers prepare proper sustainability plans and also increase the knowledge of the stakeholders in construction sites through training and awareness programs.
