In the local government building projects, building failures and defects caused by various factors, notably the variations of contract value, element structures and the lack of sound document management system. These factors and others that cause and provide a significant potential for improvement building failure and defects considered unsustainable practice. This study aims to identify unsustainable practice in building projects in local government using case study approach. The cases undertaken from 34 building projects and focusing into five cases that is represent the various kind of building type. The result indicates a significant deviation until 12.61%.
