Construction projects are subjected to a variety of risks eventually affecting the overall duration and green building projects are no exception. Use of risk assessment means in such projects is also critical to complete them within aimed schedule. In this study, risks that have potential schedule impacts in certified green building projects are identified and their impact and likelihood of occurrence values are researched. For this purpose, a survey is administered to construction professionals with green building experience. Based on the responses, risks are plotted to draw their potential impact on schedule/likelihood of occurrence in a graph to identify the most significant risk factors. This tool may help the practitioners to identify and prioritize potential risks and allocate resources in projects accordingly to prevent or minimize their possible impacts.
