The energy use and emissions related with building construction consists an important part of that of the whole society. The choice of building stock development path, the construction mode, and synergy between building construction sector and industry sector will have a great influence on future’s energy use and emissions in China. Therefore, it is of great significance to carry out relevant research to explore the sustainable development path of the China’s building construction sector. This study developed the China Building Construction Model (CBCM) and related scenario, three parts of researches has been carried out: First, reviewed the development path of building stock in developed countries, and put forward the possible development scenarios of China's building stock in the future. Second, established the scenarios to analyze the impact of building retrofit on building material demand and related energy use and emissions. Third, further considered the synergy between the building construction sector and the industrial sector, and analyze the environmental impact of building construction in the future.
