Assessment of environmental sustainability considerations for building projects designs, execution and control was studied in Ibadan, Oyo State, Nigeria. This was with a view to assisting in preventing future urban decay in the study area. The study covered six Local government areas in Ibadan. The research instrument used was questionnaire. It elicited information on the issues such as respondentsí profession, environmental conservation and preservation factors, provision of welfare facilities and environmental factors considered for building projects design, execution and control in the study area. The data collected was analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The results among others revealed that adequate information was available about environmental issues (4.05), and the state government developed environmental safeguard policies (4.10) were effective while the implementation of the environmental safeguard policies by the state government (1.74) and addressing environmental issues as part of projects design, execution, monitoring and control (1.34) were less effective and not effective. Provision of welfare facilities was somehow adequate (2.56) and less adequate (1.97). The study recommends among others that the State government should implement the environmental safeguard policies. This will enhance the environmental sustainability in the study area.
