Abstract: Construction industry is significant to sustainable and socio-economic development of both developed and developing countries with construction output directly related to national output. However, building performance in terms of quality is low; just as building construction in Nigeria is characterized by poor quality and incessant collapse caused by poor management processes and unethical practices. One of the factors affecting building performance adversely is poor construction management; poor project management in construction industry involves: 1) competency of project manager and team members’; and 2) factors related to the project. This poor construction management invariably results to poor construction project quality. Another negative factor confronting building performance quality is unethical practices; unethical practices in construction industry include lack of standard services, lawlessness, dishonesty, irresponsibility and lack of accountability. Introduced in this paper are ethical practices in building construction that affect building performance. This paper offers clarity on the mediating effects of ethical practices on the relationship between the dependent variables and the independent variable in construction industry to improve building performance quality in Nigeria.
