Abstract: The cost and time estimation of any construction project are very important tasks for economic impact and overrun of a construction. The tactics endure to plan, schedule, control of project time, and compute the investment to be contributed as sustainable and reliable. This research aims to assess conventional and green buildings characterized by cost and time estimation. The cost of various materials along with labour cost, plant, and machinery costs, etc. was calculated using data from market surveys, practitioner data, literature, and schedule of rates for Delhi issued by the Central Public Works Department. All these techniques of cost estimation helped in computing a more realistic construction cost of the buildings. While Critical Path Method (CPM) was used for time analysis to overcome impeded efficiency of traditional techniques of decision making such as Gantt chart as dodge time overrun of the construction. The influence of green and conventional building assessment favoured the productivity to the aspect of energy efficiency and overrun extent.

Key words: green building, conventional building, cost analysis, CPM technique
