Dear Dr Hwang,

Seek for provision of article "Green building project management: Obstacles and solutions for sustainable development" (2010)

(Anyone has any other suggestions for this subject? I feel it not very ok :( )

I am Happy, your student at NUS Department of Project and Facilities Management. I am currently formulating a proposal for Building and Construction Authority (BCA), named "Promoting Green Building concept in Singapore by Leadership and Governance". As doing research for the proposal, I realize that in 2010 you had an article published, which is "Green building project management: obstacles and solutions for sustainable development". So appealed by the abstract which mentioned what you had studied on the topic, I did attempt to search for a full article for more readings. However, as all the websites where the article is published are paid ones; my effort seems to be futile. This letter, therefore, conveys my interest to your article and also, it is to seek for your provision of the article.

Frankly, the thesis statement of my proposal for BCA claims that government agencies need to focus on green technology and green education if they want to promote more green building projects in Singapore. However, the issue faced is due to the shortage time, I am not able to conduct interviews to related parties and owing to the lack of related supporting secondary resources such as your study; the basis of this proposal will not be strong enough to have a significant influence on BCA. In other words, the backup of your study to the proposal will enhance the prospects of persuading BCA to amend their policies, which will create a considerable impact on green building projects management. This will be for the good of the whole construction industry and the future of sustainable development.

I believe that as researchers, we always wish our studies and suggestions to take effect. As a student doing research, I also wish my constructive voice will be heard by policy makers. However, in order to achieve that result, my proposal needs to have a solid foundation in which your article plays a major role. Therefore, I would be much grateful if you could provide me with the article. This is used for the purpose of studying for this proposal only. As the proposal needs information to progress, I would appreciate if you could respond this letter within 2 weeks.

I am looking forward to your reply soon.

Thank you very much for your time.

Sincerely yours,

Happy Diem Tran (Ms.)

Dear all,

in case you are my professor, will you give me your article if you read this letter? I mean, am I convincing enough?
