In this paper we had highlighted on the current sustainable building in Bahrain, United Arab Emirate and Kuwait.
Some of these buildings are integrated with wind turbines, i.e. Bahrain World Trade Centre , Bahrain , with Photovoltaic,
i.e. The Euro-University , Bahrain, and The English School , Kuwait, and combination of both ( wind turbine
and Photovoltaic) ,i.e. The Lighthouse, Dubai, UAE. There is also a building that is sustainable due to its unique cooling
and innovative design, i.e. the MKM Commercial Holdings LLC, Dubai, and UAE. We also had discussed the hurdles of
constructing sustainable buildings in these three countries and the GCC countries. We also had suggested several mechanisms
and policies that will accelerate the execution of sustainable buildings.
